Historic Elizabeth was established in 1664 and became the first English settlement in New Jersey, and was named for the wife of Sir George Carteret. It became a prominent and thriving economic center, and it was the first capital of New Jersey. The first major industry, the Singer Sewing Machine Company came to Elizabeth and employed as many as 2,000 people. Union County was originally a part of Essex County and was officially formed in 1857.

Union County's population is 523,000+ in a land area of 100 square miles. Of New Jersey's 21 counties, Union County ranks 6th in population and 20th in size. It is the third most densely populated county in New Jersey.

The county was established in 1857 with the county seat being Elizabeth. Several pre-Revolutionary buildings can be seen in Elizabeth. Union county is home to one of the world's largest ports for shipping containers. Princeton University was founded here in 1746.
