Pik n' Pig Restaurant, Carthage





Incorporated in 1776, Carthage is the county seat, and its central location makes it convenient to all areas of the county.  It is home to the annual Buggy Festival held each May, which commemorates the Tyson and Jones Buggy Company and Carthage’s buggy manufacturing heritage during the mid-1800s to 1920s.  2018 marked the Festival's 30th year.

Carthage is also home to the Carthage Historical Museum displaying 200 years of local history, and several historic sites are nearby including the 1760 McClendon Cabin, Moore County’s oldest structure still standing in its original location.  The Bryant House, built in 1820, is also on the McClendon property.
