That article seems clear enough that Creston has been at -07:00 
since June 1918, but it's not very clear when transitions occured 
back and forth between PDT (-08:00 standard offset, plus 01:00 DST 
adjustment) and MST (-07:00 standard offset, no DST adjustment).

I'd suggest at least adding a comment to note this uncertainty.
