For more gorgeous homes, make your way just one block over to Main Street. There are several other historic homes to see on Main and again, in many different styles. I was lucky enough to see a few vintage cars parked in the driveways as well, which really allows you to feel like you're stepping back in time. Many of the homes look like they are going through some restoration with historical preservation techniques. Carthage has done an amazing job overseeing the historical preservation and period appropriate restoration done to many of these homes.
From Main, you can turn onto Macon Street and find a few more historic gems before ending your tour. I drove around the area marveling at many other homes in the area and imagined living a small town life, owning an antique shop and strolling these streets of grandeur. I never appreciated Carthage when I was younger, but spending time discovering it in my way, on my time, allowed for a new and enlightening experience. This was the best way to enjoy the history and get inspired.
Happy historic home hunting!
