Marker Front:
Union Community Hospital served the black community and nearby areas from 1932 to 1975. Built as a house ca. 1915, it was converted into a hospital by Dr. L. W. Long in 1932 with the support of several local churches. The building was covered in brick veneer in the 1930s, and a rear addition was built in 1949. The hospital was listed in the National Register of Historical Places in 1996.

A lifelong leader in medicine and public health who was also active in civic affairs in Union, Long was named Doctor of the Year in 1958.
