UNIONVILLE BOROUGH

The borough of Unionville is a station upon the Bald Eagle Valley toll road with post office designation of "Fleming." The site of the Borough was purchased in 1843 by Zephaniah Underwood, who in connection with his son William laid it out in town lots in 1848. John Peters subsequently laid out an addition to it. It was incorporated as a borough by a decree of the Court on December 3, 1859, and the Bald Eagle Valley railroad was completed through as early as 1864. Fleming post-office was established before the town was laid out and it retains that designation.
