Renovations 90 years in the making at the Sirdar Station Pub
Nostalgia is powerful. Now, more than ever, people want to relive the past and recreate old memories. That’s why, with more than 90 years of history, the Sirdar Station Pub, north of Creston, is still up and running. That, and the last two years of tireless work from owner and head bartender Charly Harwood. Utilizing her Jane-of-all-trades skills, Harwood has redone the infrastructure of the pub, including the bar, floors, walls, pipes and insulation, and even installed a fancy new fireplace.
“It’s been here for so many years,” said Harwood. “This used to be a main train stop and a paddle wheeler crossed the lake here. People remember being here from back in the day. Parents would drink in the pub while kids sat in the car with a bag of potato chips from the store. There are so many stories from this area and the history here.”
