Virginia Independent Cities' Neighborhoods


Independent Cities are found primarily in Virginia. Others include Baltimore, Maryland, St. Louis, Missouri and combined city/county governments such as Philadelphia.

Rhode Island and Connecticut and (some) Massachusetts municipalities may also be considered "independent" where county governments have been dissolved as political entities but remain as geographic and historic territories.
