Facts about Union County

Union County sits north of Knox County, south of Claiborne County, east of Grainger County, and is bordered to the west by Campbell, and Anderson Counties. Union County was formed from portions of the counties mentioned above.

Our county was formed in 1850, but due to legal challenges and complications Union County was not formally created until January 23, 1856.

Union County is known for music entertainers such as Roy Acuff, Chet Atkins, Kenny Chesney, Carl Smith, Lois Johnson, Hilda Kitts Harrill, and Melba Kitts Greene.

Extension began in 1910, here in Tennessee, but it was not until 1917, Union County’s first agents F.G. Vickers and Maude H. Miller came.
