Rand (1882, 8,620 feet) was first called Stringtown, then Rosebud, and finally named for pioneer Jack Rand. It is a tiny ranch town with a few log and frame structures. The Rand Hotel/Store (c. 1906, J. W. Welch), 124 Rand Street, is the town hub. This two-story box under a hipped roof, like many other early buildings, has been given a rustic veneer of slab and frame siding.
