Hawthorn B&B boasts a dramatic entryway.

After a good night’s sleep in one of the five extra-large guestrooms, and a hearty breakfast (which includes the Hawthorn’s famous malted pancakes, omelets, and breakfast potatoes, served in the formal dining room), you can set forth once again to explore the fascinating town of Independence.

Truly the town deserves its inclusion in travel writer Patricia Schultz’s book, “1,000 Places to See in the United States and Canada Before You Die.”

You might even say that it’s a place “to die for.”
