Independence is the fourth largest city in the U.S. state of Missouri, and is contained within the counties of Jackson (primarily) and Clay. It is part of the Kansas City Metropolitan Area. The city had a total population of 121,212 in 2008,[4] and is the 201st largest city in the United States.[5] Independence is the county seat of Jackson County,[6] and is known as the "Queen City of the Trails"[7] because it was a point of departure of the California, Oregon and Santa Fe Trails.

The city also played a pivotal role in the early history of the Latter Day Saint movement, and is home to the international headquarters of several Latter Day Saint denominations, most notably the Community of Christ, whose Temple is located there.
