I was incredibly impressed when I recently visited Independence Place Cooperative Housing, now celebrating ten years in Willmar.

I wasn’t sure what to expect, but when I was given a tour and shown all of the amenities, I was truly overwhelmed. What a great place to have right here in Willmar! It is beautifully maintained and modern, and has features I never would have imagined. Not only that, but the people I met were so much fun to visit. I was thinking, “Hey, I’m not to the “right” age yet, but I could definitely live here!” Shiela, Editor of Season's Magazine
