Central Park Area (Wards 1 & 2) - Neighborhood History Project

Created by Powers Museum on July 29th 2019, 12:33:19 pm.

This tour features selected addresses in and around Central Park. Many of the addresses featured here (along with the remaining structures extending southward from Central Park) are listed on the National Register of Historic Places Carthage Residential District and citations to those nominations are cited as links in the Clio listings. The buildings or sites in this tour were selected because they were the locations of objects displayed (whether manufactured, sold and/or used at a particular location) in the Powers Museum's 2017 exhibit focusing on businesses and industries of Carthage (including educational institutions as employers). It was the intent of the original project to create a vehicle that could show the exhibited objects as they related to a physical location that current residents and tourists can view by walking or driving by today. The digital sites on this Clio app were originally created by a special grant project funded by the Missouri Humanities Council and the National Endowment for the Humanities in 2017-18 as part of the Powers Museum's observation of Carthage's 175th anniversary. This tour has taken addresses from Carthage's voting wards 1 and 2 (Main Street addresses are in Ward 1 while remaining addresses are in Ward 2). NOTE: Other addresses to this tour may be added in the future by museum volunteers. Contact the Powers Museum for further information.
