Live, Work, and Play in Independence


With several Fortune 500 employers, a full-service hospital, and a quality school system that prepares children for lifelong success, Independence is the perfect midpoint between small-town living and big-city opportunities. You’ll find the community bustling with activity during many annual celebrations, such as BrewBQ and the Buchanan County Fair. Independence is also an education hub, with a new junior and senior high school built in 2013 and eight colleges and universities within a 60-mile radius.


Want to explore the historical roots of this community? Take a trip over to Cedar Rock State Park to see the Walter House, a home designed by famous architect Frank Lloyd Wright. Venture downtown and embark on an underground city tour to see the original Main Street as it was in the 1840s and 1850s, preserved beneath today’s existing storefronts. And don’t forget to visit the iconic six-story Wapsipinicon Mill, one of Iowa’s largest grist mills and a cornerstone of the community. If you’re looking for more modern fun, take in the thrilling action at Independence Motor Speedway or wander through the shops downtown, where you’ll find the beautiful Wapsipinicon River snaking through town.
