History

The village is south of the former Cayuga tribe village of Gwau-gwah (Cayuga Castle), which became a Jesuit Mission. The native village was a target of the Sullivan Expedition of 1779. After the war, a reservation was established for the Cayuga who returned, but they gave up their land rights before 1800.

Mineral springs near the village made the village an important health spa.

The village was incorporated in 1848.

The current mayor of Union Springs is Mayor Ed Trufant.
