H.M.S Insurance Building

Designation Date:  June 12, 2007
Designation Authority:  Town of Carberry
Present Owner:  Town of Carberry

The HMS Insurance Building is valued for its contribution to the character of Historic Downtown Carberry, significant historically and architecturally as a rare remaining Manitoba example, mostly intact, of the kind of streetscape that defined small-town commercial cores from the turn of the 20th century. As part of the south half of the district, the HMS Insurance Building still defines important qualities and characteristics that define the whole district, including the basic form and modest materials.
