Union County was not formed until 1821, taken almost
equally from Franklin and Wayne counties.
Unlike Ohio County, Union was formed in time to have a land tract book copied ca
1845 by the office of the Secretary of State. The County Recorder has a
duplicate ledger copied again in 1923. The original ledger is no longer
available for public use.
The Treat Line Museum, a collection of log cabins, is an historical site south
of the county seat, Liberty. Each year in May and again over the Labor Day
weekend, the public may attend a recreation of late 18th/early 19th Century
village life and a re-enactment of Indian conflicts. For a few days, the old
settlement come to life again.
