Union High, at the junction of Farm roads 638 and 642, eight miles southeast of Dawson in southwestern Navarro County, was probably established in the nineteenth century. In the mid-1930s it had two schools, a church, several stores, a cemetery, and a number of houses. After World War II many of the residents moved away, but in the mid-1960s a church and cemetery remained in the area. In the early 1990s Union High was a dispersed rural community. The population was thirty in 2000.
