About Union County
There are plenty of reasons why we’re proud to serve the community in Union County. Union County was the last of New Jersey’s 21 counties to be established when it was formed on March 19, 1857. All of present-day Union County was part of the Elizabethtown Tract, which was purchased in 1664, by English colonists from the Lenape Native Americans that lived in the area
Many historic places and structures are found in the county including 69 listed on the National Register of Historic Places listings in Union County, New Jersey. The county is so steeped in history that every fall, it holds its annual “Four Centuries in a Weekend” festival, a weekend event created to tell the story of how Elizabethtown of 1664 evolved into the 21 municipalities of today’s Union County. The free two-day event opens the doors to more than 370 years of history throughout the county by celebrating and touring historic buildings, museums and sites in 35 locations.
There are countless ways to enjoy the great outdoors in Union County. Watchung Reservation is a 2,000+acre preserve located in the northern portion of the County and is the largest of 36 parks in the Union County Park System. The Reservation was designed by the Olmsted Brothers, the celebrated landscape architects who designed New York’s Central Park and dozens of other notable public lands. The Deserted Village of Feltville is a unique site located in the reservation and listed on both the State and National Registers of Historic Places. Over the course of three centuries, this area has been a thriving farming community, a prosperous mill town, a deserted village and a summer resort.
Branch Brook Park, the first county park to be opened for public use in the United States is also noted for having the largest collection of cherry blossom trees in the country.
When you’re done exploring outside or being at the end of a history lesson, a multitude of cultural opportunities stand in wake. The Union County Performing Arts Center, the cornerstone of the Rahway Arts District, offers professional productions in music and theater as well as training in the performing arts. Originally opened as the Rahway Theater in 1928, this historic vaudeville house showcased a magnificent Wurlitzer pipe organ which served as the catalyst for the preservation effort. Painstakingly restored, the 1,300 seat Arts Center pays homage to an era gone by.
The Cranford Dramatic Club is New Jersey’s oldest continually producing theater and has been putting on theatrical productions since its establishment in 1919.
Founded in 1919, The Plainfield Symphony Orchestra is the state’s oldest community symphony and the 3rd oldest continuously operating community symphony in the U.S. Featuring programs designed to educate and uplift local audiences, PSO is known for tackling rarely performed works by master composers, the best of Broadway presented in collaboration with leading Broadway performers and a wide variety of concerts designed for the entire family.
About Painting Services in Union County
One thing about Union County, New Jersey is for certain, the area is steeped in a rich history that dates back over 300 years. And that rich history is reflected in the architectural styles of the homes peppered throughout the neighborhoods, the highways and along back roads. Georgian, Greek Revival, Italianate, Queen Anne and Arts & Crafts are just a few of the distinct styles showing themselves off in the area.
When making a decision to paint the exterior of interior of your home, you may choose to honor history by picking a historically accurate color scheme. Our color consultation experts at Picone Painting and Paperhanging can help determine shades that were used at the time your house was built. Other homeowners may prefer to fly in the face of history by selecting bold, modern colors to highlight architectural details. Whatever direction you choose, our professionals will ensure that you make the right decision that reflects your personal style.
If you’re a homeowner of a newer residence in Union County, you may prefer to borrow from nature when picking a color for an exterior paint job. Lots of trees, shrubs and grass may steer you in the direction of an earthy palette of greens and browns. Perhaps the color of your roof may play a big deciding fact in the scheme that you choose. And a quick tour of the neighborhood may also tip you in one direction or another, whether you’re striving to fit in or stand out, your environment might suggest the right move.
It’s important to note that very bright or very deep colors may fade and the color may change dramatically over time.
