Union Ridge was a community in Albemarle County that centered around the Hydraulic Mills commercial area in the 19th century. [1] The community was centered around the junction of Ivy Creek and the South Fork of the Rivanna River. [2]

The mills there were attacked by Union troops and were damaged in a great flood that happened in 1870.

The land was inundated in the 1960's when the South Fork Rivanna Reservoir was created.
