Shand power plant takes it's name from the hamlet of Shand.

The last standing brick building
made from the brick once made in the area,
which was owned by Mr J. G. Peterson.

Aug 13, 1925- Estevan Mercury reported-
Mr. Petersons new home is rapidly nearing completion.
Mr. Gustafson was responsible for the architectural plans.
Mr. Peterson for the manufacture of the bricks
and Messers Jepson and Lyons of Estevan
 in command of the building contract
Completed Sept 24, 1925 when he moved in.

Jonas Gustaf Peterson born Aug 22, 1869 in Lidnas, Sweden,
deceased at Shand, Sask. on Apr 14, 1948
buried in Estevan City Cemetery
In 1911 Census he was a hotel boarder in Estevan.
He was probably in Estevan from the states,
 buying what became the Eureka Brick Plant,
eventually after other owners, Estevan Brick.
His middle name was Gustafo in the census.

Located at Sec. 4, Twp. 2, Rge. 7, West of the 2nd Meridian
The Hamlet of Shand was started by Mr J. G. Peterson,
who started his own Brick plant here, as well as a small Coal Mine.
A school once stood across from this red brick house.
At one time the Section road went right in front of this house
running east and west.
and I remember many trips my Dad took on this road,
rather than the highway.
He would always say there was more to see there.
The road in this picture runs north and south,
and is part of the haul road for the coal
from the Coal pits to the north, to 1 mile south of here,
to the Shand plant.

On the entrance road to Shand, south from Highway 39,
you now go by the new Stock Car track in the area.
