The Town of Ellington is a
22,000 acre tract on the eastern border of Chautauqua County formed
after separating from the Town of Gerry in 1824. It is originally
named for Ellington, Connecticut.
The historic architecture that survives today records the evolution of
the community and contributes to the distinctive character of the
Village. A variety of architectural styles and building types are
represented in Ellington. These historic houses, churches, and
commercial buildings are arranged around the Town Square and reflect the
differences in taste of past generations.
