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 listed on the National Registry (comprising of over 600 buildings) 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 guerillas, Wild West outlaws, powerful capitalists, Ragtime music makers, and women's rights pioneers, have left their marks on Carthage history.
