Great home in historic Carthage, Illinois! If you are looking for a large home with original architectural details on a broad tree-lined street of lovely older homes in a great, low-crime neighborhood, this could be an option.

The home is also just a few blocks to Historic Carthage Square where you will find the c.1908 Hancock Courthouse, one of the grandest courthouses in the state.

Perhaps the most-visited building in town is the historic Carthage Jail and Visitor Center where Mormon Prophet Joseph Smith Jr. and his brother Hyrum Smith were slayed by a mob in 1844. I mention this as the jail is a historical site that many members of the Church of Latter-day Saints visit each year. Our featured home today might make a lovely B&B for such visitors.
