Union's Volunteer Album

 

Union City Hall

Fire!

It was a holiday on Monday, May 30, 1887. Suddenly flames erupted on Main Street. Volunteers dashed to the horse-drawn fire wagon. Bucket brigades formed. Fire consumed the drugstore, stage office, tin shop, and hardware store, but heroic efforts kept the blaze from jumping the street. By 1891, the new brick City Hall included room for a fire department. In 2005, Union still relied on volunteers for emergency response.
