UNION HILL, TEXAS (Upshur County). Union Hill, a farming community at the junction of Farm roads 2088 and 2454, six miles north of Gilmer in north central Upshur County, was settled sometime before 1900. In the mid-1930s it included a school, a church, and a number of houses. Union Hill and several area schools were consolidated in 1951 to form the Union Hill Independent School District. In the mid-1960s Union Hill was the site of a large rural high school and a number of widely scattered houses. It was a dispersed rural community in 1990.
