Union County Indiana is one of the smallest counties in Indiana covering only 162 square miles.  Rich in farmland and natural resources, Union County boarders the state of Ohio.    The county was established 1821, formed from three other counties:;  Franklin to the south, Wayne to the north and Fayette to the west. The Greenville Treaty Line dissects the three western townships making the sections it dissects  look “fractured”.

Union County was used as a “stepping stone” by many pioneers heading toward the western lands.  Families came to the area, lived a few years and then moved on when land opened up farther west.    It was the birthplace of Generals, beauty queens, artists and one little girl that became a world famous “orphant”.   The county is mostly agricultural with a few small factories.  It is the home of Whitewater State Park and the entryway to the Brookville Lake Reservoir.   Union County may be small in Indiana, but we are big in history.
