Preserving the history of Independence since 1960

The Independence Historical Society was founded to perpetuate the history and heritage of the great City of Independence. Our group includes more than 100 members, with a strong, active base of officers, trustees and dedicated friends. The individuals of this organization are committed, and have one goal: To keep an accurate record of the city’s historical attributes from which current and future generations can learn. To do so, we strive to establish a relationship between past and present. We regularly meet, and have established a fun, and interactive historical tribute through special events throughout the calendar year.
