Independence was settled in 1824 by John P. Coles, one of Stephen F. Austin's 300 original families in Texas. It was first called Coles Settlement, the village name was changed in 1836 to commemorate the independence of Texas from Mexico.

The town square was laid out for the Washington County courthouse, but Brenham won a heated county-seat election by two votes.
