Union City, once known as Miles Mills, was founded in 1789 by William Miles who developed the community as a market and industrial center. Since then, the community has continued to expand, and today has much to offer residents and visitors. Union City has a charming, small town atmosphere with many historical and natural attractions. It is located at the junction of US Route 6 and State Highway 8.
