Former Rex Café Site
50 Main Street

Former Rex Café Site

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

The Former Rex Cafe Site, built ca. 1900, is valued for its historic 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 Former Rex Cafe Site still defines important qualities and characteristics that define the whole district, including the basic site plan of the original building. Now used as the 125th Commemorative Park, honouring the community’s 125 years of existence, the site is a prized local site for public gatherings.
