Historic Sites of Manitoba: Carberry News Express Building (34 Main Street, Carberry)

In 1910, the Carberry News Express newspaper was founded when James L. Cowie arrived in town and united the two existing weeklies, the News and the Express. It occupied this building along Main Street in Carberry, built in the late 1890s. The two-storey part originally housed a bank and the one-storey part had been a pool hall and barber shop. It is now a municipally-designated historic site.
