The charming town of Union City is just a short drive southwest of Oklahoma City.
When the main north-south line of the Chicago, Kansas and Nebraska Railway arrived in the area in 1890, it was a boon for the new Union City town site. The arrival of highway 81 in 1924 also helped the city weather the tough economic storm ahead. Agriculture quickly formed the foundation of Union City's economy that is still maintained with their grain elevator still in operation. Today the song remains the same, with local agriculture being the lifeblood of the local economy.
