Unionville is a village in Orange County, New York, United States. The population was 612 at the 2010 census, making it by far the smallest village in Orange County and one of the smallest in New York State.
The village is within the Town of Minisink, southeast of Port Jervis, and is part of the Poughkeepsie-Newburgh-Middletown, Orange County, New York Metropolitan statistical Area as well as the larger New York City-Newark, New Jersey-Bridgeport, Connecticut and New York-New Jersey-Connecticut-Pennsylvania combined statistical area.
The village was founded in the early part of the 18th Century, but became known as Unionville around 1820. According to tradition, the name "Unionville" was applied to the place after a land dispute had been settled. Unionville was incorporated in 1871. Once an important economic zone in the area, its decline followed the changes in transportation which favored other locations: the Middletown and Unionville Railroad shuttled agricultural products (especially milk) as well as high school students in the first half of the 20th century. By World War II, however, improved roads and a high school built far away from the train tracks led to the end of these services; passenger service on the line ended in 1968.
Unionville is located at .
According to the United States Census Bureau, the village has a total area of 0.2 square miles (0.6 km²), all of it land.
