McCullough Building

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

The McCullough Building, a simple, practical brick structure, is part of an important collection of mixed-use buildings from the late 1890s in Historic Downtown Carberry, a designated heritage district. The one-storey facility, altered in recent years to maintain its structural integrity, occupies a highly visible site at the north end of a continuous row of its contemporaries, all erected after a devastating 1896 fire. Long associated with family-owned grocery and meat stores, the building typifies in function as well as form the durable, adaptable storefronts that for many decades have been the backbone of established prairie business centres, offering accommodations to the shops and services that sustain local economies.
