Historic Independence Square, Colorized
First, it was the pioneers. Then, it was a president.
The historic Independence Square is the foundation of the story of Independence, MO.
It’s a colorful history, but the story was mostly captured in black and white.
That’s were artificial intelligence comes in.
We used AI to colorize a handful of photos of the Independence Square, provided by the Jackson County Historical Society.
The photos really bring our history back to life, don’t you think?
The Square was piled up with snow on Valentine’s Day in 1894.
