Where did the name 'Weyburn' come from?
Some people claim Weyburn was named after a railway man who supervised the laying of steel.
There are others however who insist the City got its name from a Scot.
The story is that on a hot summer's afternoon, an exploring Scot, on coming across the Souris River exclaimed: "Wee Burn". Hence the community became known as Wee Burn later changing its spelling to the present name of 'Weyburn'.
