Union County Historical Society

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

Beginning Tuesday, 17 March, the UCHS office in the county courthouse will be closed to the public as a precautionary measure.  Those with research queries are asked to contact UCHS via email at [email protected], or by mail to the UCHS office.  Members who wish to renew are asked to send their checks in the mail.  Information on programs will be posted on the website.

 We'll update this website as new  developments occur.

Thank you, stay safe, and keep well.
