History[edit]

Unionville was first named Harmony when established in 1853 as the county seat for Putnam County. Prior to that the county seat had moved several times, often with heated debate, thus the centralized location hoping to bring "harmony" to all concerned. (see Putnam County history for more details)

Continental Airlines Flight 11

On May 22, 1962, Continental Airlines Flight 11, en route from O'hare Airport Chicago, Illinois to the downtown Kansas City, Missouri airport, crashed in a clover field north Unionville, near Lake Thunderhead killing all 37 passengers and 8 crew. The building trades and the ag classes of Unionville High school were provided with Continental Airlines coveralls in case of broken glass and other things and they were sent up there to clean up the mess. Investigators subsequently determined that one of the jetliner's passengers, Thomas G. Doty, detonated a bomb inside the Boeing 707 in a suicide-for-insurance plot.
