Carterville is on Farm Road 130 seven miles northwest of Linden in western Cass County. It was probably named for the Carter family, early settlers in the area, and was apparently settled in the 1860s. It reached its largest point in the 1960s with a population of seventy-five. In 1983 the community had one small business, a town hall, and a church, and in 1990 the population was twenty-five. In 2000 the population grew to thirty-nine.
