Union Chapel is a historic chapel at 220 Sawmill Road in Hillsborough, New Hampshire.

The Ladies Aid Society, a group formed to provide a meeting area and chapel in the Lower Village area of Hillsborough, had the structure built in 1886–7 at a cost of $2,081.38. It was designed by John Jackman, a local architect, and has been a center of community activities ever since. It is a wood frame structure with a tower that has an open belfry.[3]

The building was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2009.[1]
