Nestled in the heart of the Blue Mountains, Union County is home to a diverse population and growing economy.
Alongside pristine lakes and snow-capped mountains lay fertile farmlands and modern communities. With ready access to Interstate 84, well-maintained state highways, and the Union Pacific railroad, Union County is far from isolated, yet rich in scenic beauty. Many passers through are so delighted by the small-town atmosphere and natural resources so close at hand—all alongside big-city amenities—that they choose to become permanent residents.
All seven of Union County’s outlying communities are within a 30-minute drive of La Grande, the county seat.
