Welcome to Independence, a historic rural community with high-speed fiber-to-the-home and an eight-screen multiplex. Located in the heart of the Willamette Valley with easy access to Interstate 5, our creative, can-do staff are focused on finding solutions and facilitating business development. And we have the awards to back it up.
In just over a decade we've turned our downtown from an eyesore to an attraction, opened several new restaurants and retail shops, redeveloped four brownfields, and brought in several new industries - including a new mill. State and federal agencies use us as an example of a town that "gets it" and knows how to get things done.
Take a look around our website and then come take a look around our town. You'll like what you find.
