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'.
