The village was renamed Unionville after the Revolutionary War. A railroad station was built here in 1847, and a post office established in 1851. The village was finally named Hawthorne in honor of Rose Hawthorne, the founder of the Rosary Hill Home, where patients suffering from incurable cancer were cared for.
