Carthage is strategically located on US Highways 59 and 79, three hours north of Houston and just over two hours east of Dallas. Interstate 20, a major east-west artery in the nation's Interstate Highway System, is only a short drive north. Carthage is fortunate to be located near the proposed NAFTA trade route, Interstate 69. It is a small, friendly town booming with oil & gas production. It has an outstanding public school system, a community college, abundant recreational activities and is home to the Texas Country Music Hall of Fame.
