The Kerr House was built in 1887 for Francis Ferguson Kerr. The architect and builder of the two-storey residence are unknown.

Kerr arrived in Winnipeg in 1887 to take the position of Principal at Carlton (later South central) School, erected in 1883 on Graham Avenue between Carlton and Hargrave streets. The city’s population had more than doubled to 20,200 between 1881 and 1886 and there had been significant expansion in education and all other areas of urban development.
