Union Real Estate Listings and Information
Union is a community in the southwestern part of the Canadian Province of Ontario, a few miles south of St. Thomas, Elgin County seat, and a few miles north of Port Stanley, on Lake Erie. The houses were mainly along the old route of the north-south Highway #4 and the east-west county road. A new route cut off the part of the highway that passed through the centre of the community. Behind the school was an east-west creek that passed under the highway and formed a large pond to the west side of it. The creek continued on under the east-west road and through the golf course. The main roads traversing the community were paved.
This was a farming area: dairy, fruit, and tobacco. It was also home to numerous people employed at the Ontario Hospital, on the south side of St. Thomas. Other people worked in various firms in the city. Summers could be hot and humid; and the winters could be mild and open or cold and snowy.
