The cemetery is operated by the Union Cemetery Association, which was created in 1878. The cemetery is managed as a single entity with two physically separate components: the east cemetery (the old cemetery) and the west cemetery (new cemetery or 1946 addition).

In 1946, the Union Cemetery Association acquired an additional 75 acres on the west side of Olentangy River Road with its southern boundary about 900 feet north of the northern boundary of the east cemetery. The cemetery began as a burial site for the Hess family and other families in 1806. In 1847, Union Cemetery was established on land purchased from the Hess family. The cemetery has a total size of 128 acres. The east cemetery has multiple entrances along Olentangy River Road and along West Dodridge Road.
