Union, MO is a small town, about an hour southwest of St. Louis.
I go back to visit with family and friends every now and then. I have a love/hate relationship with Union. I loved growing up there. I have great memories of my childhood. But I left to go to college at 17, and haven’t lived there since. I’ve figured out, I’m not a small town person. I need to be in a city. And a town of 10,000 isn’t it (up from 7000 when I left). It is cute town, and while I was there this past weekend, I walked around town and took a few pictures. On a side note, my brother was a part of the 4 person group who designed the memorial with the flag and the saddle that stands in front of the courthouse.
