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.
