HISTORIC MICHIGAN TOWN: Unionville, in the Thumb
Unionville is a village in Columbia Township, within Tuscola County's countryside. The village was founded in the mid-1800's near the area's closest water source, Wessacaugen Creek, currently known as the Wiscoggin Drain.
Unionville became a successful lumber town, but as time went on, timber became depleted. Unlike most old Michigan lumber towns, Unionville survived and today has a healthy community.
The downtown area has many cool old original buildings that still exist, making your roadtrip to Unionville a fun & interesting one (SEE PHOTOS BELOW). So add this Michigan village to your next roadtrip through Michigan's thumb and pick up a few local knick-knacks while you're there!
