STORY SEEDS

Independence Found in Many Places - Theres always a story in geographic names. Just pick a holiday, a topic, or an historical figure to learn how a placename is scattered across the landscape.

Missouri has the most occurrences of the name Independence (53), Illinois (43), California (37), Ohio (30) and Colorado (27).

Click on Geographic Names under Products, look under Query the GNIS Online Data Bases for United States and Territories. Include variant names to get historical features. You can even find out which watershed the feature is in. And, of course, the database shows the latitude and longitude on the USGS topo map after all we do maps and geography at USGS as well as the earth and natural sciences. There are also 51 instances where Independence is the name of a mine looks like a lot of folks hoped that sinking that mine would bring them their own independence Gail Wendt, gwendt@usgs.gov, 703-648-5604.
