Most photographed Carthage landmark

Located in the Ozark Mountain region of Missouri where fertile prairies to the north meet timbered Ozark uplands to the south, Carthage has experienced more than 160 years of history.

This is where the Battle of Carthage during the Civil War took place. And this is where we stopped for meals during our journey to Eureka Springs, Arkansas and on the way back to Kansas City.

Picture below is the courthouse located in the middle of Carthage town square.

Carthage town square

The square is where the action take place in Carthage as most shops and restaurants are located here.

I've turned this photo into B&W to see if it can capture a bit of its old town charm. What do you think???
