  • Nice free museum with changing displays devoted to the town of Carthage and both Civil War and Victorian history. A great place to stop and visit on Rt 66.  more »
  • We went to the quilt show and it was very interesting. The ladies who were working were very knowledgeable about the quilts and we also saw old maps of Carthage  more »

  • I knew her well and I worked for her in my youth she paid me one day with some paintings off her wall in her sitting room. It's behind glass too. Marion said I could not do the job that she hired me for properly so instead she invited me back inside and after a tour of her home and her telling me of how she acquired certain pieces of her cool collections she then had me mix her High balls for the rest of the day... Mary Winchester was always really sweet to me. Lj Ford.
  • The curator of the museum walked us through the exhibit detailing what they had on display. It was very informative and interesting. Anyone who has interest in gaining more knowledge should go even if you don't have a military background.
