Sitting empty and slowly deteriorating, Phelps House was purchased by Carthage Historic Preservation in 1988.  Through extensive restoration and repair work, Phelps House has been returned to its original splendor.  Today, the Phelps House serves as a lovely setting for weddings as well as other events such as bridal and baby showers, anniversaries, birthdays, and family reunions. 


Carthage Historic Preservation rents the historic home to the public for events. Host a luncheon, business meeting, retreat, or holiday party at the magnificent Phelps House in Carthage, Missouri.  


Phelps House is also open for public tours on Wednesdays, April through November, from 10 am to 4 pm for a donation of $5 per person. The historic home is also available for tours by appointment.
