Union Mission was established in 1820 by the United Foreign Mission Society as a mission to the Osage. It was in existence on ly 15 years, but occupies a unique position in Oklahoma history. It was the pioneer institution ini bringing Christianity and aspects of western civilization, such as education, to Oklahoma. Here was the site of the first church, the first school, and the first protestant wedding.
