Historic Sites of Manitoba: Charlie Sear Building (19 Main Street, Carberry)

Built in 1903-1905, this Romanesque Revival-style brick building in Carberry was designed to distribute and service farm machinery. Noted for its rare main-floor plan, divided into two sections, its south side is raised and equipped with an internal rear ramp to the basement garage. Built and owned for a period by local entrepreneur James White, it was later owned and operated as a hardware store and service garage by Charles A. Sear. Its brick exterior has been extensively modified from the original, with stucco covering most of the walls.
