Welcome to the Union County Historical Society!



"Exploring Union County's Past to Inform the Present and Future"

For over a hundred years, the Union County Historical Society has gathered, recorded, and shared this county’s rich past. The oral histories, honored memories, and treasured heirlooms in our archives and collections capture and chronicle the essence of time and place.

Explore newspapers, publications, property histories, and genealogies. Join us and discover how your place in time links with ours. This is where your personal journey begins.


Over fifteen students from Mifflinburg and Midd-West School Districts placed in their categories at the Region 5 National History Day competition. They will advance to the state competition in May. 

Thank You!

Many thanks to the 20+ volunteers who helped clean up around the DEW House on 30 March! Squeals and laughter echoed off the house and across the yard as youngsters from the River Valley Nature School played around the house while their parents (P.J. Harte, Dana Pfeifer, Eir Danielson, Rebekah Stevenson, and Paul Botelmo) worked nearby. Members of the Good Time 4-H Club (Sylvia Rishel and Kassidy Reedy), Tony and Mariah Noll, Tim Goff and Dave Staebler joined members of the Bucknell Women's Golf Team (Grayson B. Meredith Langs, Katie Childers, Erin Holmes, Casey Morrow, Morgan Hennessy, and Sally Sohn) in raking leaves, picking up sticks, trimming shrubs, and moving logs for eventual seating around the Milne Log Cabin. Thanks to their efforts, we should be in shape soon for the spring and summer tour season.
