Founded in 1887, Union Bay was initially established as Union Wharf, a name derived from the nearly six hundred foot long docking area along the bay. With productive coal mines in the nearby area that is now known as Cumberland, the docks served as a port for vessels that would ship the high quality coal around the world. The town was developed primarily to support the thriving coal mining industry and the mining industry workers and their families. The area maintained its status as a major shipping port until 1960, and the foundation of the local economy has since transitioned from coal to oysters. Several of the original buildings still stand in an area known as “Heritage Row,” a must-see during any visit to Union Bay!
