CHP Thanks You!
Thank you so much for donating to CHP during Give Carthage Day. We appreciate your support as we continue our mission to preserve Phelps House and Sweet House and to advocate for historic preservation in Carthage!
Carthage Historic Preservation (CHP) is a community-based organization dedicated to education about and advocacy for historic preservation in Carthage, Missouri. It is also committed to reminding the community of the economic development implicit in heritage tourism such as that drawn by its historic neighborhoods, the Route 66 corridor, and its Civil War sites. CHP owns the historic 1895 Phelps House and the Sweet House, believed to be the oldest house in Carthage. The Sweet House is serving as a demonstration site for historically-appropriate techniques and technologies for preserving and restoring historic structures.
