Downtown Union – Union, South Carolina
South Carolina | SC Picture Project | Union County Photos | Downtown Union
The City of Union was settled in the late 1740s and named for the old Union church, which served several different congregations. Union saw most of its initial growth in the years prior to the Revolutionary War, when settlers cleared the river and creek bottoms to plant tobacco, corn, and grains.
The above picture shows an unusually quiet Main Street in historic downtown Union. Here you’ll find a variety of specialty shops, unique architecture, and the Union County Museum. Also within walking distance are the Union Town Clock and the Union County Courthouse.
Photographer Ann Helms writes, “These are some of the restored buildings along Main Street in Union, including the old Dodds 5 & 10 cent store built in 1890. Most of the downtown was built between 1878 and 1940 during the heyday of the railroad in Union.”
