Precious Moments Park

The Missouri Vacation Planner lists a number of attractions in Carthage, but let's be honest - there is only one real good reason to stop off in this town: the Precious Moments Park. While there, we spent a few minutes driving around the pleasant town, as it does have some very attractive old homes - particularly the Historic Phelps House which I failed to take a photo of.

But Precious Moments is why we went to Carthage. I can not say I am a huge fan of Sam Butcher's characters, but I enjoyed the visit none-the-less.

    I sold Precious Moments at The Limited Edition in New York for over 25 years and we were always surprised and inspired by each year's new intros. If you have any questions, write me at Ruth@ thelimitededition.com or look at preciousmomentsonline.com com

    Your ovely photos remind us of our visit during our 4000 mile tour of Laura Ingalls Wilder 'Little House ...' sites. The serenity and peace of this place is truly wonderful - well done for telling everyone! Regards 'uncletony', Aberdeen, Scotland, UK
