We love Ellicott City. After all, it is our home town!
It is convenient-to-everything and a great place to put down roots. From its early beginnings as settlement known as Ellicott’s Mills, Ellicott City has attracted generations of people looking to not only learn about history but to be a part of it.
Momentous occasions in American history left their mark on Ellicott City.
The longest living signer of the Declaration of Independence Charles Carroll made his home a few miles west of town.
The Revolutionary War depended on the goods produced by the Ellicott Brothers who settled the area and built its first large scale mills.
“Tom Thumb,” the first American-built steam engined locomotive ran from Baltimore to Ellicott’s Mills Station in 1830, on what now is the oldest continually used railroad right of way in the world.
The former B&O train station at the end of Main Street now serves as a museum of the area’s history while holding the distinction as being the oldest surviving train station in the country. That same railway became a major defense position for the Union Army during the Civil War.
Babe Ruth was married at St. Paul’s Church just off Main Street.
Patapsco Valley State Park, with its ruins of early industrial mills and network of hiking paths, mountain bike trails and criss-crossing streams is an outdoor lover’s dream, and only a few moments away.
Main Street, replete with boutiques, antique stores, restaurants and museums is a few moments’ walk or a short bike ride away. Columbia, with its vibrant and growing business and cultural center is minutes from your doorstep. Baltimore is approximately 20 minutes away and Washington DC around 45 minutes’ drive.
Nestled into a hill adjacent to preserved forest land, 4051 Hunt Avenue is at the end of a private drive on a non-through street.

Four bedrooms, 3.5 baths, a two car garage, and best of all- the fully fenced back yard with tiered deck abuts preserved forest land.
