Union, Kentucky is a city in the south eastern portion of Boone County, Kentucky. The area was primarily a rural area until massive residential growth happened in the 1990's and 2000's. The Population of Union in 2010 was 5,379 according to the 2010 census.

The City of Union grew from what was once a small settlement that may have existed as early as the late 18th century. By the early 19th century, much of the land that now lies as Union was owned by the Fowler family. Benjamin Piatt Fowler built his house in what is now known as the northern area of the city c. 1817

It was recorded that Union was established as early as 1833. Official documentation shows that Union was incorporated as a city in 1838. No one actually knows why the name of Union was chosen, but it was said that it was the connection, the “Union”, between Florence and Big Bone Lick. Big Bone Lick was where salt was manufactured in the early 19th century and was brought to Union for distribution to other settlements.

Some of the Neighborhoods that exist in Union are:  Arbor Springs, Cedarwood, Cool Springs, Dublin Green, Hampshire, Harmony, Hempsteade, Indian Hill, Ivy Pond, Lassing Green, Orleans, Plantation Pointe, Russwill, Sycamore, Teutonia Estates, Triple Crown Country Club, Whispering Trail, Village of Brigadoon and Devonshire.

Several parks are nearby Union including Big Bone Lick State Park where a Salt Festival is held every year and Gunpowder Creek Nature Park. Also nearby is the Boone County Arboretum.

Nearby Attractions include: Turfway Park horse racing, Florence Freedom Minor league baseball, Kentucky Speedway, Kings Florence Speedway, Newport Aquarium, Creation Museum, Florence Mall, Cincinnati Reds, Cincinnati Bengals, and Cincinnati Cyclones.
