Many in the town are proud of this underground town. Parts of the original town were once hidden since... well it was underground, but now many of the building owners have put in a vault to preserve the early Independence history.
The 1993 movie Groundhog Day is a family favorite. Watching Bill Murray relive the same day over and over never fails to entertain. Did you know that this movie set in the famous Pennsylvania town was really filmed in Illinois though?
