Union County is situated in the northeastern part of the great state of Oregon, USA. Established on October 14, 1864, the county was named in honor of the federal union in the midst of the American Civil War. Covering an area of approximately 2,038 square miles, Union County is bordered by Wallowa County to the east, Umatilla County to the west, and Baker County to the south. The county seat, La Grande, was founded in 1863 and is the region's largest city.

Union County's history traces back to the indigenous Nez Perce, Cayuse, and other Native American tribes calling the region home. The Oregon Trail, which served as a primary route for early pioneers during the American westward expansion in the 19th century, passes through the county. Settlers were captivated by the fertile valleys and abundant water supply of the region, leading to the establishment of agricultural communities.

Its economic growth and development were propelled mainly by agriculture, ranching, and the lumber industry. The arrival of the Oregon Railway and Navigation Company (OR&N) in 1884 further accelerated the growth of the county.

A fun fact about Union County is that it hosts the Eastern Oregon Livestock Show in the town of Union each June. This event, which began in 1908, is the oldest livestock show in the Pacific Northwest and showcases a multitude of livestock, including cattle, sheep, and goats, as well as horse racing and a carnival. Visitors from across the region come to celebrate the agricultural heritage of Union County during this week-long event.
