Historic Sites of Manitoba: Carrick House (431 Twelfth Street, Brandon)

This two-storey wooden residence on Twelfth Street in Brandon is believed to have been built around 1905 by building contractor William J. Lang for James Carrick of the blacksmithing and carriage building firm of Carrick & Hadaker. In 1911, the house was sold to educator William Bodkin Beer. It remained in the Beer family until 1985 and was in use as a bed-and-breakfast at the time of a 2021 site visit.
