Settlers John and William
Horner found an oasis by the Bay and laid out
a small settlement of eight square blocks in
1850, which they called "Union City."
The name probably originates from the Horners'
Sacramento River steam boat called "The
Union." Before these pioneers, Mexican
rancheros and the Ohlone Indians occupied the
area. The area was well known for its fruits,
vegetables and eventually sugar, salt and steel
industries. When incorporated in 1959, Union
City brought together the communities of Alvarado,
Decoto, and New Haven. Since then many young
families have moved to the area, attracted to
a friendly and safe community with new housing
developments and an abundance of jobs.
Union City transportation
is easy to commute by Interstate 880. The Bay
Area Rapid Transit (BART) system operates a
train station at 10 Union Square near Decoto
Road east of Alvarado-Niles Road. Getting to
