Old Ellicott City
Although one of the main attractions in Ellicott City is a beautifully restored old Mill Town built in 1772, it also includes much more. The historical Main Street includes a wide array of restaurants, museums and shops. Historic Ellicott City is one of those rare towns where people from all walks of life converge. Suburban teenagers, bikers, aging hippies, yuppies, New Agers and good ol’ boys coexist in mostly tranquil harmony. In 2016, Old Ellicott City experienced a major flood. The city, restaurants and stores are slowing coming back. There is much pride and resilient in the town.
