Property for sale in the Union, WV real estate market, and in that of surrounding Monroe County, can admittedly be hard to come by. Though an hour's drive south of I-64, at Lewisburg, and east of I-77, at Rich Creek, VA, the community's virtual isolation has preserved it and rendered it among the most idyllic in West Virginia. Vast bluegrass farms, quaint Victorian villages, and sweeping panoramas of the Allegheny Mountains have conspired to create a breathtaking environment here among which residential, commercial, and agricultural properties are of the highest value and in greatest demand. Though the market has enjoyed an increase in modern showplace homes in recent years, old-world architecture still dominates the market: antebellum mansions and Revolutionary War era plantations rise from shady groves amid the farmlands while white-washed folk-Victorian homes cluster around its sleepy villages. Established in 1774, Union was so named as the site served as a rendezvous for troops during the Indian Wars. The town is one of the oldest settled communities in West Virginia.
