Carthage, Missouri, is home to a quarry from which has come the marble for many monuments and governmental facilities around the nation. The Jasper County courthouse is one of the finest showcases of its majesty. Beautiful stone and classical architecture blend into a remarkable edifice....More

The Jasper County courthouse, built in 1898 is a beautiful piece of architecture. The grounds are beautiful but don't miss going inside. The first floor is basically a museum. Tells a lot of history about Route 66 and also Carthage's role in the Civil War
