Union City is located on the northern border of Branch County, about ten miles northwest of Coldwater. This is a small picturesque and historic town that functions primarily as an adjunct community to the greater Coldwater and Battle Creek areas. It has a striking turn-of-the-century look architecturally, with well preserved downtown buildings and several Victorian style homes. A Civil War monument can be seen on the north end of the main street area in the churchyard, while a veteranís memorial along the riverbank to the south end stands to commemorate those who fought in more recent wars.

Union City was first settled by Justice Goodwin in 1833, when he built a mill here and became the first postmaster, calling it "Goodwinville." A year later, he sold several hundred acres to E. W. Morgan, who officially platted the site, renaming it from the "union" of the Coldwater and St. Joseph Rivers, which join there. It was eventually incorporated as a city in 1866.
