Union County History:
Union County is a county located in the southern part of the U.S. state of Iowa. As of the 2010 census, the population was 12,534. Organized at a time of tensions before the American Civil War, the county was named in 1853 for the Union that people wanted to preserve. The rural county’s peak of population was in 1930. Its economy is based on agriculture and related industries. After the American Civil War, railroad construction linked the areas of the county, giving rise to new towns, and gave access to other markets. In 1868 the railroad reached Afton, Iowa, and the next year Creston, the county seat, was made a division point. The railroad built service facilities there: a roundhouse, and related structures. The railroad brought many immigrants and migrants to the area, who were attracted to the fertile soil as farmland. Immigrants came from across central and eastern Europe, as well as from eastern states of the US. The Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad (BNSF) continues to be important in the area, as it is the chief network for hauling grain and coal. Over the years, it drew workers from industrial cities such as Chicago to Creston. Creston and the county are still served by the Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad (BNSF), the largest network in the nation. Wikipedia page.
