Welcome to Union-Miles
The Union-Miles neighborhood was once part of the Village of Newburgh and was known as the region's largest settlement at the start of the 19th century. Steel mills developed in the 1850s and 1860s and drew Irish and Welsh immigrants followed by Slovenian, Romanian and Czech immigrants 30 to 40 years later. Since the 1960s the neighborhood has experienced a change in the race/ethnicity of its residents. The neighborhood’s non-white population increased from 10% in 1960 to almost 97% in 2000. Today the neighborhood is known for its many assets including the Miles Park Historic District, originally the public square of Newburgh village, the Earle Turner Recreation Center and Miles YMCA on Miles Road, the Union-Miles industrial area which provides jobs for many neighborhood residents and the Calvary Cemetery, which acts as a large green space at the edge of the neighborhood.
