Paul Reiter Recognized with Historic Preservation Award

The house at 360 S 3rd Street has a history in Independence that goes back almost 100 years. Built by local banker Ira Mix in 1923 after his marriage to Marie Powell, the house has since changed hands over the years and now finds itself in possession of local home improvement aficionado Paul Reiter.

Once Paul discovered it was time to settle down, he finally decided to remaster the house he now calls his "retirement home."
