C. O. Harrington constructed this modest building for the U.S. Post Office
which agreed to stay in this location for at least five years. In 1899
he built the adjoining building. The Post office is directly across the
street from the Carthage
Civil War Museum.
About Us We started traveling Historic U.S. Route 66 as a destination in 2009. It's like a 2,400 mile long drive back in time from Chicago to Santa Monica! more
You Know: Many parts of the old 4 lane Route 66 were reverted to a 2 lane
road after 66 was realigned to the interstate. In many places the abandoned
lanes are still there.
