LDS Visitors Center

<p>The LDS Visitors Center, often called the Mormon Center or the Mormon Visitors Center, is the major facility owned by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Independence. The Visitors Center was built directly next to the Mormon Church, which acts as their community center. The LDS Visitors Center was designed with influence from other major temples around the world such as the Parthenon in Athens, Greece. The building has been renovated multiple times since its opening in the 1970s with moderate success bringing in residents and introducing them to the Mormon faith.</p>

Metropolitan Community College

<p>The Metropolitan Community College is actually comprised of 5 different campuses, the Independence campus being one of them. The Independence location is more commonly known as the MCC-Blue River campus and it serves more than 4,000 students each semester. The Blue River campus generally serves arts students with music and theatre programs, but there is also a Public Safety school at the institution that provides training for multiple professions including peace officers, firefighters, and EMTs. The campus has both men and women's soccer teams that play under the mascot of the Trailblazers.</p>

Harry S. Truman Museum

<p>The Harry S. Truman Presidential Library and Museum is located in Independence, which is also the former President's hometown. The facility preserves much of the documents that Truman worked with as President as well as artifacts and mementos from his life before his ascension to the Presidency as well as afterward. Unlike the building of most Presidential libraries, Truman actively participated in the direction of the museum, helping to choose documents and even holding press conferences for visitors. The Truman Museum was the first of its kind, built under the 1955 Presidential Libraries Act.</p>
