First settled in 1854, Independence was originally organized into a township. Named after Lake Independence – which in turn got its name from Fourth of July celebrations – the township was officially organized in 1858. The community maintained this form of government for almost 100 years, and in 1956 it was incorporated into the City of Independence that we know today.
