South Residential Historic Homes Tour


After an architectural survey in the 1970's conducted by Carthage Historic Preservation, Inc., three districts were nominated to the National Register of Historic Places: Courthouse Square District in 1980, Carthage South District in 1982, and Cassil Place in 1986. Today, visitors can tour these districts to explore outstanding examples of post Civil War architectural styles from 1870's through early 20th century designs. Generally spaking, the boundaries of the south or residential district, featured in this tour, are Clinton on the east, 5th Street on the North, Garrison on the west, and Centennial on the south.
