Carberry News Express Building
34 Main Street

Carberry News Express Building

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

The Carberry News Express Building, two brick structures unified on the exterior by brick detailing, is valued for the continuity it provides to the street edge which is occupied by several designated heritage buildings of similar scale and character. Of typical brick construction and straightforward design, featuring corbelled brickwork and drip mouldings, the modest structure, built in the late 1890s, is part of a continuous row of brick buildings from the late 1890s that represent an important era in the town’s development as an agricultural hub. The two-storey structure, an early bank building, and the one-storey structure, a long-time pool hall and barber shop, also recall an important aspect of the community’s business and social life. Now occupied by the Carberry News Express and opened into one large space for its printing operation, the solid structure remains integral to the town’s historic business street.
