Current Projects Happening in downtown Union City

Mural in downtown Union City, May 2023

Mural Project 2023

Downtown Union City is getting a fresh look with a new mural in Merchant’s Park, thanks to the “Run the Rails” team who raised the funds to give back to downtown. Toney Little, who was raised in Union City, is the artist behind the masterpiece. His choice of medium is spray paint, with vibrant colors showcasing landmarks of Union City, including Discovery Park of America’s Cooper Tower; Obion County’s #1 row crop, corn; the railroad tracks, a homage to Union City’s intersection of the Nashville and Northwestern Railroad with the Mobile and Ohio Railroad; the historic Capitol Theatre, located in downtown; and the Reelfoot Meat Packing chimney stack, a landmark that many recall seeing as they grew up in Union City.

This new mural is just the beginning of many projects that investors of Main Street Union City help fund.
