The Town of Unionville is alive and well in Symco, WI. Unionville was the original name, you can no longer find it on a map, but the hear of the town is still beating with the help of a host of volunteers in the Thresherman as well as their friends and family that make Unionville not only come alive for the and stay alive all year long. Unionville consists of more than 60 buildings including a church, school, bank, fire and police station, saloon, tractor repair shop, shoe shop, post office, barbershop, general store, print shop and a sawmill. This is the first year visitors will be able to see the water-powered feel mill in operation. The stone mills were found in Tennessee and West Virginia. The blacksmith shop is also new. The thing that makes the Thresheree so extraordinary, as well as many events throughout Waupaca County, is that it is virtually run and maintained by an amazing group of volunteers. People like you and I who are passionate about a hobby or a way of life, and they want to share that with others. The Thresheree begins Friday July 29th and runs thru Sunday July 31st.
