While communities celebrate in the streets homeowners begin decking their walls, some of Carthages most historic homes were open to ticket holders today. While touring the Victorian homes, visitors had the opportunity to stop for lunch at the oldest home in Carthage, Kendrick Place. Cinnamon rolls, pies and cookies were all for sale. Visitors also had the chance to do some of their Christmas shopping on site. Handmade crafts and antiques were on display just waiting for the right owner to come along.
