The Old Town Hall in Carberry, a modest-sized yet well-proportioned Neo-Classical brick building built in 1907, is a good illustration of the multi-use public facilities erected in small Manitoba centres in the early 1900s. Together with its landscaped site, which includes a solemn war memorial, the structure also is a symbolic centrepiece of the Historic Downtown Carberry heritage district. In design the building displays simplified classical elements: a flat, minimally adorned roofline, a symmetrical facade with pilasters and arched openings and a grand formal entrance. In function the facility has evolved with municipal government needs to remain a vital part of its streetscape, for many years accommodating the local jail as well as offices and meeting space.
