In 1820, a group of settlers from Richmond, Virginia took a boat trip up the Missouri River in search of a new home. They were tired of being ruled by others and wanted to live their lives without interference from a government. The founders of Independence, Missouri wanted a place where they could be free from the social customs that had been established in the United States at that time. It was not long after they left on their journey that they found what they were looking for.

Known as “the Gateway to the West,” Independence Missouri is a city of about 150,000 people. A notable monument in the city is its Liberty Memorial Tower. This tower, built in 1926, was designed with a Renaissance style for an American world's fair.
