This tour features selected addresses in Ward Four, a mixed residential and commercial neighborhood with several educational institutions. Most of the buildings or sites featured in this tour were selected because they were 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 those objects as they related to a physical location that current residents and tourists can still interact with.
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. NOTE: Remaining addresses in this ward may be added in the future by museum volunteers. Contact the Powers Museum for further information. www.powersmuseum.org
