Welcome to Carthage

Carthage Chamber of Commerce

On behalf of the Carthage Chamber of Commerce, we would like to welcome you to Carthage, Missouri, America’s Maple Leaf City! Whether you are raising a family, running a business, or simply enjoying the many recreational, cultural, and historic opportunities available in our community, you will find Carthage a vibrant, friendly, special place to spend a vacation or a lifetime. Located in the heart of Southwest Missouri, Carthage offers exceptional educational facilities, a low crime rate, affordable cost of living and plenty of community activities and celebrations to bring enjoyment throughout the year.


Discover Carthage through its Victorian architecture, Civil War history, Route 66 memories and sites, numerous shopping venues and friendly neighborhoods. Experience the impact the Civil War had on this early mining community and what attracts the nearly half million visitors to this warm hometown each year. But most importantly, discover Carthage through our people, with generations of residents who have lived here their entire lives, sharing a strong sense of community and tradition, evident in the involvement and dedication they bring to the various community organizations. Meet the new Carthaginians, people who have seen the beauty and opportunities available and have made the commitment to live their lives, raise their families, operate their businesses, and retire in America’s Maple Leaf City.

Carthage is a city with a brilliant past and an even brighter future. As the advocate for the business community, with over 350 members, the Chamber provides programs and services to ensure we maintain a favorable business climate, and also acts as the conduit to promote organizational, economic and community development within the region. Many opportunities await businesses and entrepreneurs including commercial and retail space near and around the downtown square as well as newer development areas in the south part of Carthage. In addition, industrial locations located within a new Enhanced Enterprise Zone are available for development or expansion projects.

We “Welcome” you again with pride, into our community, whether you are here for a day, a week or a lifetime.

The Board of Directors, President and Staff of the Carthage Chamber of Commerce
