HISTORIAN

The Town of Ellington is a 22,000 acre tract on the eastern border of Chautauqua 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 buidings are arranged around the Town Square and reflect the differences in taste of past generations.
