The city was founded in 1772, the town features the B&O Railroad (same one as seen in the Monopoly game) Museum in Ellicott City Station, it was built in 1830, and a historic downtown district which is a popular destination among antiques shoppers, with restaurants, eclectic boutique shops, coffee shops, a tea room among the many historic sites. Stated by the 2000 U.S. Census report, Ellicott City had outgrown Towson, as the largest unincorporated county seat in the country.
Ellicott City has been listed as one of America’s most affluent communities and the county it is located in, Howard County, is the third wealthiest county in the United States according to the U.S. Census Bureau. Since 2005 ranked by Money and CNNMoney.com, Ellicott City has been ranked four times among the top 20 Best Places to Live in the United States.
The downtown section of the city is often called “Historic Ellicott City” or “Old Ellicott City”, it is called this to distinguish it from the unincorporated area that extends to the north which is the Baltimore County line, south to Columbia, and to West Friendship.
In about 1772, three Quaker brothers from Pennsylvania, chose the picturesque wilderness, upriver from Elk Ridge Landing which is known today as Elkridge, Maryland, to establish a flour mill. John, Andrew, and Joseph Ellicott were the founders of Ellicott’s Mills, which became one of the largest flour milling and manufacturing towns in the East.
The three Ellicott brothers helped to revolutionize farming in the area by persuading farmers to plant wheat instead of tobacco and also by introducing fertilizer which helped to revitalize depleted soil in the area. Charles Carroll, a signer of the Declaration of Independence and a wealthy landowner, was an early influential player that helped to convert farmers from tobacco to wheat.
In about 1830, Ellicott’s Mills became the first terminal of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad outside of Baltimore. The train station which was built of huge blocks of locally quarried granite, still stands today as a living history museum, it has also been designated a National Historic Landmark by the U.S. Department of the Interior. The station bears the designation as the oldest surviving railroad station in America. As for the famous race between Peter Cooper’s iron engine, the Tom Thumb, and a horse-drawn carriage took place at Relay which is on the return trip from Ellicott’s Mills, it took place in August 1830. The horse won the race due to a broken drive belt on the Tom Thumb, even so steam engines were improved, and the railroad station became a vital link in Ellicott City’s economy.
