I love old general stores. There is really nothing here except a store, a pub close by the store that appears to be closed for some time, and a couple of houses. I have not been able to find much information about the place on the internet either. Apparently at one time there were a few businesses, a rail station, and a rail turntable.
This one is at 49.243537, -116.621086 if you want to look it up on Google maps.
I had a peek inside the windows. The place operates because there is merchanise inside. I really want to look inside sometime as you can see very old original wood and glass store display cases. The store has a date of 1913 on the building. I was by here about a year ago and it was closed then. I think the hours might be erratic.
I drove by this March 11 which was Saturday and it was closed. I drove by it again on my way home on March 13 and saw someone exiting the store. I pulled over and asked the elderly gentleman if the store was closed. He asked if I needed to get my mail. I mentioned I did not live in the area, I was passing through and I wanted to know when the store was open. He informed me that he was locking up and the owner went into Creston as there was a problem with a water pipe and that the owner needed to pick up something to fix it. So the store was closed until he got back. So now I know for certain the store operates. I am just three for three for not being able to see the inside.
This is the pub.
Sirdar is on the side of a mountain. Across the highway is Duck Lake. These are terraced rock walls for an orchard just a little past the pub.
