Independence Historical Society


WELCOME to the website for the Independence Historical Society. We are a group of lifelong and new residents, young and old, committed to preserving and sharing the rich, unique history of the city of Independence. Feel free to browse our extensive historical collections. From daily life to contributions during wartime, we seek to capture and bring to life the people and places located in the heart of Cuyahoga County. You can also learn how to get involved with the Independence Historical Society and become part of the continuing story of our proud city.

Don’t forget to check out our calendar of events. We are committed to a handful of very special events throughout the calendar year, and we invite you to share in the fun of our community’s heritage.
