After numerous trips to Edmonton from his home in Ohio, he purchased a farm in what is now Terwillegar Park and named it Riverside Farm. He moved to Strathcona in 1910 and was very active in political affairs. He served on the council for rural residents, was president of the Conservation Association of Strathcona, and was a member of the Masonic Order. Carter returned to the United States with his wife in 1923.
