I have heard that this is the second most photographed place in Missouri. It is very majestic and historical.

Just learning the history of the building is enough for the visit, see it at night also, You will find this has claim to the second most photographed landmark in Missouri,, so you gotta go !

Great photo opportunity. This Courthouse is one of only a few remaining courthouses of its stature. You won't regret stopping by. There is an actual cage elevator with a man who operates it.

Lovely old building, go inside and read some of the history of the courthouse. We rode the old lift to the top floor which is manually operated by an attendant.

This is a stand out building in the centre of Carthage. You can see the top of it as you come into the town.

This is the most stand out building in Carthage. We did not go in but walked right around it. It dominates the square and is a fine building , not much more can be said.
