The Town of Union was incorporated in 1872 by the combining of the two former townships of Oak Grove and West Eau Claire.
The Town of Union is nestled in the Northwest corner of Eau Claire County. It borders Chippewa and Dunn Counties, City of Eau Claire and Town of Brunswick. The town is a scenic blend of agriculture, wooded and residential properties. The Town also boasts a large, much developed industrial park. The industrial park includes one of the largest employers in western Wisconsin. The Town has several hotels, restaurants, heavy truck services, etc.
There are residential homes throughout the Town which are mainly single-family residents. There are several planned, subdivision neighborhoods also.
The Town has three natural parks. These parks are designated for walking, horseback riding, cross-country skiing, etc.
The Town of Union is home to several music festivals. Currently they are Blue Ox Festival and Country Jam. There are festival grounds that border the scenic Chippewa River. The festivals also use the Whispering Pines campground which is in very close proximity to the festivals.
