Living in Ellicott City, MD

Ellicott City was founded by the three Ellicott brothers, who bought the land in 1771 intending to grow wheat and use the nearby river to power a mill. As more farmers moved to the area, they sent their grain harvests to the Ellicotts for milling. The grain and milling business continued to grow, giving the Ellicott family an excellent reputation in the area.

Aside from working on building their business, the Ellicotts also worked hard to build their community. They ensured that only the best teachers came to the community to operate local schools, and they were an important presence in the local Quaker religion, eventually contributing to building a new Quaker meeting house in the town.

Today, the charming city founded by the Ellicott brothers is home to nearly 66,000 residents, according to the U.S. Census. The charming town manages to embrace its historic past while continuing to modernize and look to the future.
