Union Real Estate Information

Union is a medium sized community found in the southwestern portion of the state of Ohio. Union has a population of approximately five thousand six hundred residents as of the census taken in the year two thousand, a figure which has increased substantially in the five years between then and the next census bureau estimate. In that period of time, the community's population increased by approximately three hundred and fifty residents, putting the current figure at about five thousand nine hundred. Union straddles the county line between Montgomery County and Miami County, and is technically considered a city of the Buckeye State. Union is a part of the Dayton Metropolitan Statistical Area, and encompasses a total area of about four and one third square miles. Union is located along the Stillwater River, and is bisected by State Route Forty-Eight.

Union is governed by a unique tripartite form of city government, which includes a mayor (Zachary Johnson), a city council, and a manager (John Applegate). Although the region was originally inhabited by Native American tribes, the first non-indigenous spurt of settlement began towards the turn of the nineteenth century. Union itself was founded in the year eighteen six, and received its current name in the year eighteen sixteen, while it was officially incorporated as a city of the Buckeye State in the year nineteen eighty two. Union is also relatively convenient, so residents of this comparatively small town should not be overly concerned about giving up urban comforts, especially thanks to the city of Dayton.

The educational needs of Union are met by a number of private and public institutions, including the Northmont City School District, which encompasses Northmont High School, Northmont Middle School, O.R. Edington Elementary School, and Union Elementary School, as well as the Vandalia-Butler City School District. Notable attractions in the region of Union include Thunderbowl Lanes, the Englewood Cinemas, and the TK Limited Art Gallery. Union is also situated relatively close to the 180th Skate Park, Union Community Park, Englewood Metro Park, and Helke Park. There are also plenty of other things to see and do in the immediate vicinity of Union and the surrounding communities.
