Carthage represents a unique pattern of development from the start of a settlement created for the newly created county seat in a new county, to that of a small city which still serves as a county seat in a rural county. Despite being a rural county, and lack of rail service to the city, Carthage has grown steadily over the years and serves as the historic center of Leake County.
