Clintons Soda Fountain Enjoy old time favorites and visit President Truman’s first workplace By Sandy Turner The Examiner A young couple steps up to the 100-year-old marble countertop and looks over the menu posted on the wall. The inside of Clintons Soda Fountain sends the couple back in time as they’re surrounded by the images and tastes of yesteryear. It’s like a lesson in history, while enjoying an old-fashioned ice cream and soda fountain serving up something they’ve never heard of — phosphate. The building on the historic Independence Square that houses Clintons dates back to the 1800s and over the years has been a shoe store, jewelry shop and pharmacy. When it was Crown Drug Store, a young man named Harry S Tru-

man landed his first job cleaning the store before the business day for $3 a week. If President Truman still walked the Independence Square he wouldn’t miss the chance to stop in at Clintons for a sweet treat. Topping the menu at Clintons is Harry’s Favorite – a butterscotch sundae with chocolate ice cream. The Buck Stop Sundae features eight different scoops of ice cream atop a chocolate brownie and topped with caramel, marshmallow sauce, hot fudge, whipped cream and a cherry on top. Local entrepreneurs Ken and Cindy McClain lay claim to Clinton’s, along with 13 other establishments on the historic Independence Square. Over the past decade the McClains have recaptured the essence of the downtown shopping and business district making it a destination for everything from fine dining to entertainment. Among the many ice cream flavors, toppings and cones, Clintons also offers pastries, candy and an assortment of memorabilia revolving around President Truman and the history that makes Independence so unique. Find out why the buck stops here and try a Buck Stop Sundae or Missouri Mud Pie and experience a time in history when life was simple. Visit Clintons at 100 W. Maple. Clintons is open Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m to 6 p.m. Check out the complete menu at www.clintonsodafountain.com. Discover Downtown Independence

The Nebraska House

Written by Ted W. Stillwell My friend Christine Rinck and her husband live in a very historic old house on the north side of Independence known as the Scarrit House, located at 104 West Elizabeth. The pre civil war home was originally built and occupied by Lewis Jones, who was quite a landowner in the early days of Independence. He is probably best known for his historic Nebraska House on the Square. Christine did some extensive research on Jones, which she chose to share with me, in hopes that I would pass it along through this column. Since 1980, the northeast corner of Liberty and Maple Streets has been a parking lot, which sure comes in handy during Santa-Cali-Gon. But, since the very beginnings of Independence it had been the location of a hotel.

In 1825, this part of Missouri was still Indian Territory, that is, until General William Clark negotiated with the Osage. Clark was, at that time, the superintendent of Indian affairs and helped open up this neighborhood for settlement by the Americans. Shortly thereafter, Independence was named the county seat. The legislature advertised 140 town lots to be sold at auction, but no one showed up. So, they tried a second time with free whiskey as an incentive to bring in the people - and succeeded that time! The going price was from $20 to $43 and one of the first lots sold was on the corner of Rock Road (Maple Street) and Liberty. Joseph Roy - who was probably a fur trapper by trade - purchased the lot. He was the brother of Louis and Jean Baptiste Roy who were fur traders. Joseph understood business well, and

figured he could clean up by selling whisky and a little gambling on the frontier in his dram shop on that corner. Of course, in those days a tavern also served as a general store and hotel, where they slept two and three to a bed. He served drink to the rowdy roustabouts and dusty trail riders to a point where his “den of iniquity” was often alluded to as a brothel; Roy had many brushes with the law in those early days. Roy sold to Wilson Roberts in 1836, taking his wife and 13 daughters to live in Ray County along the Fishing River where he could once again chase beaver. Roberts ran the business for about a decade before it burned to the ground. Lewis Jones then purchased the property and straightened up the tavern’s reputation by rebuilding it into a first class hotel on the frontier during the rip-roaring trail days. It was christened the Nebraska House and included a Chinese laundry on the third floor, and a post office on the first floor. The swanky hotel restaurant employed little black boys with huge fans to keep the pesky flies out of the customer’s dinner plates while they ate, and the chickens out of the kitchen. However, Jones was more than an innkeeper; he was a businessman, politician, and freighter on the trails. His early years in town found him as a blacksmith, he was a 49’er during the California gold rush, and was one of the founding fathers of the mule drawn railroad from the Independence Square to the Missouri River landing. During the Civil War, the hotel was emptied of its furniture and served as a hospital during the second battle of

Independence. Gone were the prospectors, the traders of the trails, and the settlers. The grand old hotel had seen its glory days and dwindled into a seedy boarding house by World War II and was demolished in 1980.

Please tell me about your most rewarding or satisfying experience, your proudest moment, since you started this business. What is really satisfying is when a person, who has been searching for that one thing which will complete their collection, finds it in our shop. If you could change one thing about the Independence Square, what would it be? The activities on the Square are great for the shop owner. The Corvette show and Santa-Cali-Gon makes us realize that all we need are events that will bring people to the Square. It would be nice to have one event once a month. Even if we have simple things like a sidewalk sale, special day or night where each shop offers a discount, stays open late and people can shop for the holidays. The event doesn’t have to cost a lot of money or be a lot of work for any one person.’ To learn more about Antiques on the Square, visit their store at 101 N.
