Union County

Union County is the smallest county in the state of Florida, established from a portion of Bradford County in 1921. The county was to be named New River, the original name of Bradford County. The name origination of Union is unclear, although it has been suggested that it was derived from the fact that both parts of Bradford County were united in wanting the separation.
