The first settlers came to Union in 1667. Before that, the town was inhabited by the Unami clan of Lenape Indians. In 1666-67 a group of Connecticut farmers who rebelled against the strictness of Puritanism in Connecticut bought the land from the Indians at 12-15 cents a square mile. They settled in what was a part of Elizabethtown, and named it Connecticut Farms. During the Revolutionary War two British invasions were fought by Connecticut Farms soldiers.

On November 23, 1808, the Township of Union was formed with the N.J. State legislature and other neighboring towns petitioned to form Union County, and separated from Essex County. In 1901, 775 acres were taken from Union To become Roselle Park. Six Years later 1330 acres were taken to establish Kenilworth. Elizabeth took 410 acres in 1908, and the largest area, 1750 acres, became Hillside Township in 1913. These communities along with Springfield, Millburn, Maplewood and Irvington are Union’s bordering towns.

During the period of 1900-1929, Union changed from a farm area to an industrialized community. Much building followed the Depression years. Many small factories were Established between 1929-1941. There is small growth potential. Multiple dwellings (over two families) have been banned by ordinance since 1958. Small houses have been built on undersized lots, whenever possible, as there are few remaining large pieces of land. One of the big strengths of Union is its location. It is minutes from Newark Int’l Airport, The Garden State Parkway, Route 22, and Route 78 all have entrances and exits in Union. In 1976, at the annual competition of the National Municipal League of Williamsburg, Virginia, the Township of Union was one of nine cities in the nation to be awarded the Title "All American City" for the year 1976-77.
