Welcome to the Independence Square!
|After the Missouri Comprimise of 1821 Missouri became the 24th State of the Union. In 1827 the town of Independence was platted and a log courthouse was constructed. The problem was, the courthouse was also used as a pig pen in the daytime and was infested with fleas. A solution to this problem came in 1829 with the construction of the brick courthouse on the town square.
The City of Independence was incorporated in 1849.
|There is much to do and see here in Independence Missouri. From unique shopping to historical sites. Independence has been a place where some of our countries greatest leaders made important decisions.|
Terrific shopping, wonderful restaurants, and numerous accomodations... plan to spend about 2 days here to gather it all in!
