Uniontown, one of the early settlements of Bourbon county, is situated in the valley of the Marmaton river on the Missouri Pacific R. R., 15 miles west of Fort Scott. A postoffice was established near there in 1856. A few years later it was moved to a point about 2 miles east of Uniontown and in 1862 to its present location. A school was taught at Uniontown in 1860 but no building was erected until 1864. The following year a town company was formed and the first buildings of the village erected. These were followed by other business buildings and the Methodist church. In 1871 a mill was built and after the coming of the railroad the town began to flourish. At the present time it is a banking point for a considerable district, has several general stores, a hardware and implement house, wagon shop, lumber yard, livery stable and in 1910 had a population of 300.
