Who Calls These Names

August 21, 1903, the Reardan Gazette said:
“Reardan has five general merchindise stores, two hardware stores, two lumber yards, two drug stores, one bank, two livery stables, two barer shops, two butcher shops, one jewelry store, one confectionery store, one millinery store, three blacksmith shops, three saloons, give large grain warehouses, a 400-barrel flouring mill, two doctors, one lawyer, one newspaper, one real estate office, one hotel, one restaurant, a handsome auditorium and lodge room.

“Fraternal societies comprise the Odd Fellows, Rebekahs, Woodmen of the World, Women of Woodcraft, Maccabees, Fraternal Army of America and Grand Army of the Republic.

“There is, also, a public park adjoining the town on the east owned by the citizens of Reardan, containing a ball ground and grand stand. So rapidly as possible this ‘breathing space’ is being beautified and in time will become one of the greatest attractions in the town.”
