About Independence

Independence is a city in Missouri, USA, in the Kansas City metropolitan area. As of the 2006, the city had a total population of 109,400[1]. It is the county seat of Jackson CountyGR6.

History

The Independence Temple, headquarters of the Community of Christ, is located in Independence.
The Independence Temple, headquarters of the Community of Christ, is located in Independence.

Independence was founded on March 29, 1827 and quickly became an important frontier town. Independence was the farthest point westward on the Missouri River where steamboats or other cargo boats could travel due to the convergence of the Kansas River with the Missouri River approximately six miles west of Independence, near the current Kansas-Missouri border.

In 1831, members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS or Mormons) began moving to the Jackson County, Missouri, area. Shortly thereafter, Joseph Smith, Jr., the Latter-day Saint prophet, declared a spot just west of Courthouse Square to be the place for a prophesied temple of the New Jerusalem in expectation of the Second Coming of Christ. Tension grew with local Missourians until finally the Latter-Day Saints were expelled from the area. Many offshoots from the main body of Latter-Day Saints gradually returned to the city, often making Independence their headquarters, including the Community of Christ, the Restoration Branches and the Church of Christ (Temple Lot).

In the mid-1800s an act of Congress defined Independence as the start of the Oregon Trail.

President Harry S. Truman grew up in Independence and in 1922 was elected judge of the County Court of Jackson County, Missouri (an administrative, not judicial, position). Although he was defeated for reelection in 1924, he won back the office in 1926 and was reelected in 1930. Truman performed his duties in this office diligently, and won personal acclaim for several popular public works projects, including an extensive series of fine roads for the growing use of the automobiles, building of a new County Court building in Independence, and a series of 12 Madonna of the Trail monuments to pioneer women dedicated across the country in 1928 and 1929. He later returned to the city after two terms as President. His wife, First Lady Bess Truman, was born and raised in Independence.

Independence continues to be of great importance to branches of the Latter Day Saint movement and is the headquarters of the Community of Christ. The Community of Christ has built a large and striking temple in Independence (see Independence Temple), and also operates other buildings nearby, including a large auditorium. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormons) operates a large visitors center nearby to these buildings, all of which are nearby to the original Temple Lot, which still remains empty.

Schools

Five school districts have areas within the city: Independence, Kansas City, Missouri Public Schools, Blue Springs, Fort Osage Schools, and Raytown. Four public high schools are located within the city limits: Truman High School, William Chrisman High School, Van Horn High School, located in the Kansas City School District, and Fort Osage High School located in the Fort Osage district. The city also is home to one campus of the city-wide Blue River Community College.

Festivals

Santa-Cali-Gon Days is an annual Labor Day festival held in Independence since 1973 that celebrates the city's heritage as a starting point on three major frontier trails: the Santa Fe Trail, the California Trail and the Oregon Trail.
