Area Overview

Carthage, Missouri, is a unique crossroad of architecture, history, art and inspiration Established in 1842 then burned to the ground during the Civil War, the town was reconstructed during the Victorian era. Along with the tri-state mining boom of the late 1800s and early years of the 20th century, a diverse and robust economic profile was created for Carthage. Its families, businesses and industries as well as its social organizations, left the town with a legacy of architectural marvels that are now featured in four districts (comprising of over 600 buildings) listed on the National Registry including one of the largest residential districts in Missouri. These structures housed people and enterprises whose impressive tales continue to intrigue travelers today. Civil War guerrillas, wild west outlaws, powerful capitalists, Ragtime music makers, and women’s rights pioneers, have left their marks on Carthage history.

In modern times, Carthaginians celebrate their heritage through family fun events and cultural activities that keep those legends alive. Join us for Independence Day, Marian Days, Maple Leaf Festival, and Christmas or stop by anytime to visit our historic district, Precious Moments, Route 66 and Civil War sites. We welcome you to Carthage anytime to celebrate small town America and hometown hospitality.
