Travel Tips for Independence

TEMPLE ORGAN RECITALS

by mtncorg

Built of 5685 pipes ranging in size from ¼ inch to nearly 40 feet tall, the Temple organ was built and installed by the Quebec organ company Casavant Freres Limitee in 1992-93. It is a gorgeous instrument with a brighter sound than the mellower sounding Auditorium organ across the street. The trumpet pipes – trompette enchanade – in the Auditorium are placed in the rear of the seating opposite the main organ pipes. Here, in the Temple, space is more constrained and the trompette enchanade extends from the middle of the main pipe organ array. Organ recitals are given at 3 PM on Sundays for free to those who like to show up. Check ahead of time, however, as the site of the recital varies from the Auditorium or the Temple. Recitals last about a half hour and normally feature classical movements. At the conclusion of the recital, organists invite visitors to come up and see the organ at closer range, answering questions and possibly allowing a riff or two on an instrument that would make the Phantom of the Opera turn red with envy. Organists practice every day on either this organ or the Auditorium organ. Favorite practice time here in the Temple is early in the morning with only the music light on. As dawn approaches, the light within the shell of the Temple makes the atmosphere that much more magic.

Independence Square Courthouse

by basstbn

Reigning over the courthouse square in downtown Independence, Missouri, is the Jackson County Courthouse. It is here that Harry S. Truman began a political career leading him to become the 33rd president of the United States. Visit room 109 to see Judge Truman's restored office (open Friday and Saturday, or by appointment).

Queen City of the Trails

by sambarnett

   Even considering the proximity, you cannot simply refer to Independence as a suburb of Kansas City. There's just too much distinctive history here and you could spend days discovering it around each corner. Pioneers have been stopping here for over 150 years, you should too!

   Unfortunately I only had an afternoon here, leaving only enough time to visit a few of the sites. I didn't get to explore hardly any of Independence's Harry Truman legacy nor the excellent National Frontier Trails Center. All the better reason to visit here again!
