There are two townships in New Jersey carrying the name of Union. Union Township, in Union County, was settled in 1667, as the third English speaking settlement in New Jersey. The portion of the settlement that is now known as Union was then called Connecticut Farms, and was incorporated as a township in 1808. Union Township, in Hunterdon County, was incorporated in 1853, and named for Union Furnace, which was producing iron as early as 1700, and was an important manufacturer of cannon balls for the Revolutionary War. Topics referring to either of the townships are appropriate for this category.
