Town of Independence History
The Town of Independence came into being in 1850 as the
settlement of a dispute about where to locate the county seat. At that
time, a controversy arose between the people of Old Town and people of
the Elk Creek area. Each group wanted the County seat in its area. The
final decision, made by three commissioners from adjacent counties, was
to locate on the site favored by a group of "independents" and to call
the town Independence. These commissioners hiked to the top of Point
Lookout Mountain and looked down into a grove of trees where 5 streams
met and decided that would be the site for the new town. Independence is
located 15 miles west of Galax, 40 miles east of Marion, 29 miles south
of Wytheville, and 10 miles north of Sparta, North Carolina. The town
provides water, sewer, police, and garbage services.
Natural Tunnel, called the "Eighth Wonder of the World" by William Jennings Bryan, has been attracting sightseers to the mountains of southwestern Virginia for more than 100 years. Today it is the focal point of Natural Tunnel State Park, a park which offers visitors not only spectacular sights but also swimming, camping, picnicking, hiking, a visitor center, an amphitheater and interpretive programs.
The creation of Natural Tunnel began more than a million years ago in the early glacial period when groundwater bearing carbonic acid percolated through crevices and slowly dissolved surrounding limestone and dolomite bedrock. Then, what is now Stock Creek was probably diverted underground to continue carving the tunnel slowly over many centuries. The walls of the tunnel show evidence of prehistoric life, and many fossils can be found in the creek bed and on tunnel walls.
Location: Natural Tunnel State Park is in Scott County, approximately 13 miles north of Gate City and 20 miles north of Kingsport, Tenn.. To get there, from I-81, take U.S. 23 North to Gate City (approximately 20 miles). Take State Route 871 and go one mile east to park entrance.
Road State Park was purchased in 1993; the park is approximately
200 acres that lie astride the "Wilderness Road." Wilderness Road was
carved by Daniel Boone in 1775 to open America’s first western
frontier. Most notable in the park are the Karlan Mansion, built in
the 1870s, and Martin's Station, a replica of a fort built there in
1775. Click here to visit the Friends of Wilderness Road's website,
which provides details about the fort.
