Forbes Building
40 Main Street

Forbes Building

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

The modest-sized Forbes Building, built in the late 1890s,  is an important part of a rare collection of late-nineteenth-century commercial structures in Historic Downtown Carberry, a designated heritage district. The enduring building complements its neighbours in type, scale, construction materials and spatial layout, and is a critical element in maintaining the physical and functional continuity of its streetscape. Its association with two long-term occupants, J.B. Davey and Son (Funeral Directors) and Carberry Radio-Electric, also recalls an extended period of the town’s business development.
