    Had an advanced booking for two nights but arrived a day early to avoid traveling in a snowstorm. Staff was gracious and welcoming and gave us the same reduced rate we had paid for the original stay. Room was nicely appointed and very clean. Quiet and calm environment. Staff was responsive and friendly, and free breakfast was the best hotel breakfast we've had. Would definitely stay here again if we are here. Thank you, Super 6 plus Kansas City East Independence Missouri, for making our visit so enjoyable!

Travel Tips for Independence

CHURCH OF JESUS CHRIST - CUTLERITE

by mtncorg

One of the smallest surviving branches of the Mormon schismata of 1845 is the Church of Jesus Christ - Cutlerite branch. Their history is a fairly complicated one - an incomplete version can be found on their website - suffice it to say that those who followed Alpheus Cutler as Mormon leader following the death of founding prophet Joseph Smith came to settle in the small southwestern Iowan town of Manti. Cutler died in 1864 and his successor, Chauncey Whitney, led the faithful to the Minnesota community of Clitherall (“Old Town”). A communal Order of Enoch became the order of the day, but defections to the RLDS due to an extremely rigid ordered lifestyle - much as was the case at the Amana Colonies further south in Iowa - kept the movement small. In 1928, the church decided to return to Zion - Independence - where all but one member live today. Supposedly, the 30-some members still live the communal Order of Enoch to this day. The small church building lying a few blocks south of the Temple Lot is a two-storied building in which the ground floor is where normal worship services are held. The upstairs is reserved for special rituals not unlike those found in LDS temples.

MORMON WALKING TOUR

by mtncorg

Independence offers visitors historic walking tours covering local sites of interest one of which is the Missouri Mormon Walking Tour. Mormons believed that native Americans were members of the lost tribes of Israel and missionaries were sent out from the New York Mormon heartlands very early in the church's history - 1830 - to the then Indian Territory - now Kansas. Federal law prohibited active proselytization within the Territory so these missionaries retreated to nearby Jackson County and the town of Independence - founded in the 1830's as a starting point for the Santa Fe and later Oregon Trails - gaining some successes which further prompted a visit in the summer of 1831 by the founding prophet Joseph Smith, Jr., himself. He identified a spot just west of Independence as the place of the Second Coming of Jesus and the area quickly became a second gathering point for Mormons - Kirtland, Ohio was the other. The dramatic short years of Mormon presence here in Independence can be relived in the sites covered by the walking tour.
