Also see . . .  Carthage Book Club. In 1907, twelve area women, including Texas' first woman Senator, Margie Neal, established the circulating book club. Focusing on civic and social issues in addition to literacy, the club's first major project was to raise funds for Carthage's first sidewalk, connecting downtown to the Santa Fe railway. In 1922, members established a clubhouse and ladies' restroom, which met the needs of rural women visiting town for trade and business.
