Many people comment on the beauty of the village. " Unity to our mind is the garden of Waldo County... Unity village is the largest and finest inland town in the county. A look of freshness and neatness pleasing to see...everywhere fine farm houses with everything of neatness and care." Republican Journal, September 26, 1851. There are still many lovely farms and a thriving Amish community.
 
Incorporated in 1804, it is a vibrant community with activities for the whole family. The Community Center holds activities for both young and old. The Performing Arts Center showcases many different types of music and art performances. The Field of Dreams offers tennis, basketball, baseball and a very active walking (or running) course.
