Union County, situated in Northeast Oregon, is framed by the Blue Mountains and the Wallowa Mountains, and defined by the Grande Ronde Valley. The County offers scenic vistas, exceptional recreational resources, four distinct seasons, a rich history, cultural resources, and urban amenities not found in many rural settings.

“If Eastern Oregon was a separate state, La Grande …would be its natural capital.”

      – San Jose Mercury News

Connected to the world by I-84, the Union Pacific Railroad, and exceptional fiber resources, Union County possesses excellent access to global markets at competitive rates.

The La Grande/Union County Airport provides general aviation connection to all airports in the Pacific Northwest.  While Union County is not adjacent to a major commercial airport, it just hours away.
