The City of Union grew from a small settlement that may have existed as early as the late 1700’s. However by the early 1800’s, much of the land that now lies in Union was owned by the Fowler family, and Benjamin Piatt Fowler built his in what is now the northern area of the city c. 1817.
It has been recorded that Union was established as early as 1833, but existing documentation shows that Union was officially incorporated as a city in 1838. Why the name Union was chosen no one actually knows, but the story goes that since it was a connection point between the City of Florence and Big Bone Lick, “Union” seemed somehow appropriate. Salt was manufactured at Big Bone during the early 1800’s, and then brought to Union for distribution to other area settlements.
