Union County was founded in 1850. It was named in honor of the strong sentiment of the people in the region for the preservation of the Federal Union.

Maynardville, with a population of 178, is the county seat. There is no railroad entering the county. The surface of the county is generally hilly, but there are a number of valleys running through (he county, furnishing excellent soil. The county is very well watered by springs and running streams. The principal streams are Powell's River on the northern boundary; Clinch River runs through from east to west. Besides these are a number of creeks which afford excellent water power. The county is well timbered and contains rich deposits of iron ore, which is worked to only a limited extent. There is also a silver-bearing lead ore, zinc and vast quantities of beautiful marble. The principal agricultural products are corn, wheat, oats, grass and clover; much of the arable land of the county is given to meadows and pasturage. Stock is largely raised, which is driven to Knoxville and shipped.
