Historic lighting is finding a new home in Carthage.
The city of Carthage has updated lighting in Central Park, which left light poles in use for decades without a home. Now the group “Vision Carthage” is selling those lights as a fundraiser.
The Chamber of Carthage is one of the new homes – even while a few of the matching lights are still in service in other areas.
“These exact lights that are still there working – along Bel Air and Euclid in Carthage, these lights are still there. So this was able to keep a part of history and just ties in well with the architecture,” says Mark Elliff.
Vision Carthage has already sold a number of the light poles, but still has six left, available at a cost of two hundred dollars each.
