Charles J. Carter constructed this home in 1907. Similar to single-family dwellings built by other Edmonton entrepreneurs at the time, his house features a wooden frame, lapped wood siding, and a front veranda with turned porch columns.
The City relocated the Carter residence and stable from their original location at 54 Heiminck Street (10002-107 Avenue) to this spot in 1995 as a tribute to a time when horses, pigs, and chickens were more common in Edmonton yards than Fords, Toyotas, and Jeeps.
Carter worked as a contractor, blacksmith, and packer for the furniture company Blowey-Henry, and although his name graces this home, he only lived here for a short time. Others enjoyed the home for many long years. Residents included the baker, Charles W. Campbell; a retired couple, James and Mary Gauld; the men of the Men's Co-operative Residence here in the 1950s; and the longest-staying occupant, Martha Pehl, an employee of McGavin's bakery before her retirement.
