Tourism Information

Discover Carthage through its Victorian architecture, Civil War history, Route 66 memories and sites, numerous shopping venues and friendly neighborhoods.  Experience the impact the Civil War had on this early mining community and what attracts the nearly half million visitors to this warm hometown each year.  But most importantly, discover Carthage through our people, with generations of residents who have lived here their entire lives, sharing a strong sense of community and tradition, evident in the involvement and dedication they bring to the various community organizations.  Meet the new Carthaginians, people who have seen the beauty and opportunities available and have made the commitment to live their lives, raise their families, operate their businesses, and retire in America’s Maple Leaf City.
