Welcome to West Union!

Welcome to West Union!

From the halls of our churches to the streams that surround us, from the Courthouse Square to our abundant parks, we welcome you home. In West Union, we have managed to preserve a special way of life, where our neighbors are our friends and visitors are always greeted with a warm smile and a hot beef. That special quality of life is one of the things that we hold dear, connecting us to our land and to each other. In West Union, we honor our families and cherish our friends. We preserve our past and we revel in the vision of our future.

That future is happening now, as we are proud to be a Green Streetscape Pilot Program Community. Inspired by our agricultural roots of using every resource available, we are tapping into cutting edge technologies, building material, and energy solutions to reconnect the community with its historic downtown. From our past, through to our present, and focused on the future, we are West Union, and we are deeply connected.
