The former Union United Methodist Church, with its outstanding stained glass windows and unique wood adorned Chapel has been a center for the community for over 100 years. In addition to Church services, the building has been made available to the public for events, classes, weddings, fundraisers and until its closure in 2019, Union Senior Meals.
The historic building on Main Street Union is an outstanding statement of architecture. Saving this landmark building from deterioration will be a monumental task. The Technical Assistance Grant from The Ford Family Foundation will help guide The Friends of The Historic Union Community Hall to successfully provide the residents of Union with a location for community events and arts.
The Friends of the Historic Union Community Hall was formed after a signature drive in Union resulted in a significant number of community members demonstrating support for the creation of a community and arts center.
The Ford Family Foundation was established in 1957 by Kenneth W. and Hallie E. Ford. Its mission is “successful citizens and vital rural communities” in Oregon and Siskiyou County, California. The Foundation is located in Roseburg, Oregon, with a Scholarship office in Eugene.
The Friends of The Historic Union Community Hall is in search of stories and photos about the former Union United Methodist Church. Please email any photos, stories that you may have about the historic Union building to HistoricUnionCommunityHall@gmail.com .
