Independence, KY – One of the Fastest Growing Cities
These rural communities offer urban advantages, which draw families to the area. Farms and older homes are reminders of the area’s secluded country origins. But as Cincinnati expands, both Taylor Mill and Independence (the latter Kenton County’s second seat) are becoming increasingly popular choices for families seeking moderately priced homes in a peaceful, rural setting. Both are convenient to I-275 for quick commutes to shopping and dining, the airport and downtown Cincinnati. Independence, incorporated in 1842, is the third largest land-mass city in Kentucky. It is also one of the fastest-growing cities in the state, ranked 99th, according to Forbes magazine (2007). Independence has still its original county courthouse. Its amphitheater, a great venue for concerts, an occasional movie and puppet show for children, is located behind the Senior & Community Center, adjacent to Memorial Park. The Community Christian Academy, Pre-K–12, a ministry of Community Pentecostal Church, is located here. Taylor Mill marked its 50th year, though its history goes back to 1795. There were all kinds of festivities held at the Park Place Community Center in Pride Park, which underwent a major renovation recently. Originally a 69-acre sheep farm, Pride Park, on lush rolling hills, features a playground area, amphitheater, walking and hiking trails. Three private schools and the public Scott High School, on a 78-acre campus, serve students. Ryland Heights Country Club is nearby.
