Independence, known to the locals as the friendliest town in America, is a modern city that still maintains its small town charm. Located minutes from Elk City Lake, this community has amenities such as a movie theater and water park, but still has a large presence of small shops and boutiques that give the city a unique flair. Independence is home to NBA record holder and champion, Scott Hastings, and is named for the Declaration of Independence.
