Wanted to go in but closed on Sat? But just looking at if from the outside was quite worth the visit.

“History and neat architecture”
Reviewed April 24, 2012

Not worth a trip to Carthage (unless you're close), but you should definitely see the courthouse if you're in town. And take a ride in the elevator for a taste of the way it used to be.

“Beautiful!l”
Reviewed April 23, 2012

Our three year old calls the courthouse the "castle". She loves to drive by and see if the princess is in one of the windows. The courthouse looks beautiful at night and during the Christmas season.

“Incredible history, incredible structure, town and people”
Reviewed April 6, 2005

I was raised for a good portion of my life in Carthage, Missouri. The courthouse located in the town square is a remarkable building, filled with history that could be written in hundreds of books. The story of the man falling off the clock, the story of the lawn being seeded with onions are fun town filled stories, but the walls of the courthouse are filled with history that is deeply seeded in the town of carthage. The building in itself, is well worth the trip to Carthage, once there, it is the people who will win your heart.
