Union history:

Union was the last town to be settled east of the Connecticut River because of its rough terrain and poor soil. In 1633, John Oldham, an adventurer from Massachusetts, obtained, from the Indians here, specimens of black lead or graphite. During the Revolutionary War, the valuable resource was tapped by Governor Trumbull for use at cannon foundries.

Union, containing 12,500 acres, was sold by the General Assembly on July 2, 1720 to twelve proprietors for 307 pounds. The earliest actual settler, James McNall, came to Union in 1727.

Lumbering was a leading industry during he 19th century. Shoes and axe handles were also made here. The only surviving industries are agriculture and forestry. Union is now mainly a residential community.
