Unity is located on Routes 9 and 202 and was incorporated June 22, 1804. It is the home of Unity College, pictured above, which specializes in environmental sciences and outdoor recreation. The college has an art gallery, lecture and concert series, and an excellent library with a children’s loft, all of which are open to the public.
Unity is located on the shores of Lake Winnecook, a fine place to boat, fish, and swim. A public boat ramp and ample parking available gives easy access to the lake. Also located on the shores of Lake Winnecook is the ‘Field of Dreams’ Athletic Complex. The Complex has a walking path, several ball fields, picnic tables, and an excellent playground with all new equipment.
The Snowduster’s Snowmobile Club maintains several snowmobile trails throughout the town for winter fun. Unity is home to Unity Raceway, a local summer favorite of stock car fans, is located on Route 139 and is open from mid-spring to late fall. Every fall, the popular Common Ground Country Fair attracts thousands of people to witness and enjoy the delights of homemade ice cream and natural food. Unity’s attractions make it an all-seasons place to work and play.
