Union County is located in the northeastern part of the great state of New Mexico. Established on February 23, 1893, the county was carved out from portions of four other New Mexican counties: Colfax, Mora, San Miguel, and Taos County. It bears its name in honor of the union of the United States, emphasizing unity and pride for the nation.
The county seat, Clayton, was founded in the early 1880s in anticipation of a railroad connection to the area, which eventually happened in 1888. The town was named after Clayton, Missouri, in honor of a town official's wife's birthplace. Union County played a significant role as a transportation hub due to its location along the Cimarron Cutoff of the Santa Fe Trail.
In the early 20th century, Union County's economy depended primarily on agriculture, ranching, and the railroad industry. The region has a reputation for its vast and scenic ranchlands, with cattle ranching as a major contributor to its agricultural industry.
