Union County was named after the Old Union Church built in 1765. Scottish-Irish settlers moving from Virginia and Pennsylvania moved to the Union area starting in the 1750’s.
Union County hosted a few Revolutionary War battles including Musgrove’s Mill on August 18, 1780 and the Battle of Blackstock on November 20, 1780, so it is rich in United States history, and a great place to visit for those interested in learning more about U.S. history.
