Manitoba Municipal Heritage Site No. 298


Modern Bakery
42 Main Street

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

The Modern Bakery, a well-proportioned Romanesque Revival structure situated in the midst of an impressive collection of its contemporaries, is a fine example of a pre-1900 brick business block that still performs yeoman’s service in Historic Downtown Carberry, a designated heritage district. Built in the late 1890s, the building displays the essence of its early aesthetics, most evident in the intricately detailed brickwork of its upper facade and in its wide single storefront. In function this facility also maintains a central role in the town’s business and social life, having housed for many decades a bakery and cafe operated by the prominent John Crich and Dick Appel families, among others.
