Independence Overview

Welcome to Harry Truman's home town. Go see where Harry first worked at Clinton's Soda Fountain then go visit his home if you'd like. Saying there's a lot of history to this great town doesn't do it justice. It's also the beginning of the Santa Fe, Oregon and California Trails. Go see the 1859 Jail & Marshalls Home and read about the famous stories of Frank James. Also be sure to swing by what is thought to be the oldest two story depot in Missouri, Chicago and Alton Depot.

From antique shopping to Bed and Breakfasts you'll enjoy your stay at Independence. Be immersed in national and local history as you explore Independence. From the Water Park to the Nature trails you're sure to love the town and all it has to offer.
