Underground Tours of “Main Street” Independence

You’ll have a chance to see what lies underneath the city of Independence this Saturday.

The Buchanan County Historical Society will host a self-guided underground tour from 10 to 2. Everyone is invited to come check out the hidden remains of the 1873-74 era of “Main Street” Independence.

Start your tour at the Wapsi Mill and spend as much time as you like in each of the designated locations. Volunteers will be on hand to answer any questions.

Tickets will be available that day at the mill from 8 to noon. The cost is ten dollars for adults or twenty dollars for family groups.
