Significant for its association with one of Minot’s most prominent families is this well-preserved example of the elaborate and showy houses affluent North Dakotans built at the beginning of the twentieth century. The house was built for physician Carr Sr. and his wife, Addie, a Red Cross volunteer. The two-and-a-half-story Colonial Revival house with a steep front gable has a full-width porch carried on paired columns. Carr is credited with securing Minot as one of the eight Carnegie libraries built in the state. Extensively rehabilitated after the 2011 flood, the house is now a bed-and-breakfast.
