Union Valley, TX

David Minor General Entry

Union Valley is on Farm Road 35 five miles west of Quinlan in southwest Hunt County. Its settlement occurred sometime in the 1880s. From its inception Union Valley has served area farmers as a school and church community. It was bypassed by the railroads that crisscrossed the county in the late 1880s and early 1890s and has never exceeded a population of fifty. In 1986 and 1990 twenty-five residents were reported.
