As you might imagine, user guidelines are required when renting any facility. (You can’t believe what it takes to restore and maintain a historic home…) We’ll try to make it as painless as possible!

  • The State of Missouri requires the Phelps House to collect sales tax on all fees.

  • To reserve your date, a refundable deposit of $200 is required. The deposit for a wedding is $500.  This deposit would be retained in the unlikely event that the Phelps House was left in an unsatisfactory condition. Carthage Historic Preservation, Inc., the owner of Phelps House, retains the deposit in the event of a cancellation for any reason.  

  • Should damage to the house occur in any way, the deposit will be forfeited.  Additionally, if repairs exceed the amount of the deposit, the renter will be responsible for the balance.

  • The rental fee includes the first floor and grounds only.  Access to the second and third floors is not permitted unless the ballroom has been rented.  Exceptions may be made for bridal party preparations. Please speak with Mrs. Hill to make arrangements.

  • Rental fees are collected at the time the house key is provided.

  • The deposit is refunded at the end of the month following the event. (For example, those holding an event in October will receive their refund after November 30.)

  • Prices are subject to change.
