Union County Real Estate
Union County has a full and exciting history and offers many
opportunities for business and pleasure today. The famous
Oregon Trail passed through here in the Mid 1800's. It was
not until September 5, 1861 that a family of immigrants from
Iowa by the name of Leasey came into the Grande Ronde valley
and built the first home in La Grande.
The communities of Union county include La Grande, Island
City, Summerville, Imbler, Cove,
North Powder and the surrounding areas. Today, La Grande and
Island City are the center of the population. The slower pace
of life, clean air, sunshine, and light traffic make this
a most inviting alternative to the hustle and bustle, pollution
and noise of large metropolitan cities.
The sight of the Grande Ronde valley brought delight to early
travelers after their long journey
across the dry plains. This great green bowl, encircled by
mountainous walls, was more like the "Oregon" they
expected to find.
Residents of Union County revel in the quality of life enjoyed
here the physical beauty, the abundance of recreational opportunities
and an environmentally healthy climate. Yet because of the
advancement of technology, businesses here are able to compete
in the global marketplace.
