Independence, Oregon has a rich history. It was named for Independence, Missouri where the wagon trains started their long journey west on the Oregon Trail, and was known as the “Hop Capital of the World” from the 1890s to the 1940s. The city’s historic past easily coexists with a community that is home to artisans, brewers, bakers, winemakers, technologists, entrepreneurs, and people who welcome visitors with a wave or story that makes them feel at home. Independence has a distinct sense of place that is grounded in its history, connected to nature and filled with community spirit.
We look forward to seeing you soon.
