Manitoba Municipal Heritage Site No. 313


Waters Block
125 Main Street

Waters Block

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

The unpretentious Waters Block, a two-part brick structure of substantial rectilinear proportions and spacious main-floor storefronts, is representative of the kind of practical mixed-use business properties established in Carberry in the early 1900s and modified over time to accommodate a variety of occupants. Built in 1901, the workaday building, adapted for use by farm implement and car dealers, hardware merchants, clubs, residential tenants and assorted shops and services, contributes an image of durability and functionality to its eclectic streetscape of commercial and institutional buildings in Historic Downtown Carberry, a designated heritage district.
