Independence

The area post office was established by Isaac Everett in 1837 as Everett's Creek; in 1838, this was changed to Crews Creek (presumably after the present Cruises Creek); in 1839, Thomas Hordern renamed it Bagby. In 1840, Kenton was formed from Campbell and Boone counties. Local farmer John McCollum donated a site at the center of the new county to be its seat of governance and the name Independence was chosen to honor the liberation of locals from Campbell County.[4] The post office was renamed the same year. Quickly settled, Independence was formally incorporated by the state assembly in 1842. The population was 24,757 at the time of the 2010 United States census.
