The City of Independence was founded in 1845 as pioneers from Independence, Missouri settled into a new life along the Willamette River.  Today, the "city" retains an old-west charm and hospitality while meeting all our modern needs.  We enjoy antique stores and great restaurants, as well as high-speed internet and nearby facilities such as the Monmouth Senior Center and Dallas Aquatic Center.  Oregon's state capitol Salem is only 15 minutes away.

In the summer, Independence hosts music and movies at the downtown Riverview Park.  There are numerous other festivals and goings-on nearby all throughout the year.  Don't miss the Buena Vista auto ferry, or the amazing butterflies, quails, and reptiles at Wings of Wonder.  Also, many wineries are making notable pinots around here...Willamette Valley has over 200 wineries.
