The town of Union was settled by orchardists who planted the first pear and apple trees here in the foothills of the Blue Mountains in the 1860s.

Explore the charming downtown, a collection of Victorian homes and brick buildings that make up Union’s National Historic District. Nearby Catherine Creek State Park is just one entry point into the grand Wallowa-Whitman National Forest, with camping, hiking and fishing opportunities in a tranquil setting alongside Catherine Creek.
