Free carriage rides around the grounds of the MHI. No registration required.

Enjoy a free carriage ride on the grounds of the Independence Mental Health Institute (MHI) as part of the Independence Public Library’s One Book One Independence (OBOI) programming. One of the major themes of the OBOI 2019 selection What She Left Behind by Ellen Marie Wiseman centers around an asylum in New York.

The library is offering free tours of the Independence MHI grounds provided by Clip Clop Wagon Rides and Carriage Service. A map highlighting places of interest will be provided. 

No registration is required. Tours will be given on a first-come, first-served basis on March 16 from 12:00-3:00 pm. Call 334-2470 or visit the One Book One Independence webpage here for more information.
