Historic Sites of Manitoba: White House (510 Fourth Avenue, Carberry)

Built around 1900, the Queen Anne Revival styling and careful craftsmanship of the White House in Carberry reflect the Ontario heritage of its original occupant, contractor James White. Although many of the buildings in Carberry are made from brick made at the Sidney brickyard, the distinctive red bricks for this house were made at the Edrans brickworks, apparently because White’s wife had connections there. His company built several of the town’s noteworthy buildings, including his own sash and door factory next to the house, three nearby churches, and the Sear business block.

The building, now a part of the Carberry Plains Museum, is a municipally designated historic site.
