Unity is an exceptional destination for hikers and nature enthusiasts, especially if you wish to take in the great views from a 2,011 feet (613 m) peak. If hiking is not your thing, Crescent Lake is just 1.7 miles from Unity, where a public boat ramp allows visitors and residents to access the lovely little lake with forest-covered shores. Unity was incorporated in 1764, and in the early 1800s, the town’s economy was based on sheep farming and industry with grain mills, sawmills, a clothing mill, and a distillery. The Unity Town Hall building was originally built as a Baptist meeting house in 1831.
