~C. Newell , Ellicott City
Anyone who loves a quaint, historic Main Street instantly falls in love with Ellicott City’s historic downtown. The volunteer Historic Ellicott City, Inc. group has done (and continues to do) a lot to share and spur an appreciation of historic architecture in the community, and as professionals who’ve closely studied the building trade, those are efforts that we truly respect and value.
Through our decades of chimney service work throughout Anne Arundel County, Prince George’s County and Howard County, Clean Sweep of Anne Arundel County has gotten the chance to do restoration and repair work on lots of historic fireplaces and chimneys, some of them in Ellicott City. And taking part in bringing a piece of history back to life is a fantastic part of our job — along with helping our clients enjoy their historic (or new) chimney system for years to come.
If you live in Ellicott City and need chimney care, we hope you’ll come to us — Clean Sweep of Anne Arundel County would love to help!
Exploring Historic Ellicott City
Just looking at the architecture in Historic Ellicott City is a joy, particularly if you happen to work in anything connected to the building industry. Here are a few of our favorite ways to explore the area:
Look Back At Railway History
Like a lot of cities in our area, the railroad played a large role in Ellicott City’s early development. You can peek into that history today by visiting The Baltimore & Ohio Railroad Museum: Ellicott City Station, the “oldest surviving railroad station in America and … the original terminus of the first 13 miles of commercial railroad in the country.” The station traces back to 1830, and after several restorations and its development into a museum, its appearance now reflects what you would’ve seen back in 1857. Through exhibits and memorabilia, you can get a sense not only of Ellicott City’s history, but the history of travel in America.
Learn At The Howard County Historical Society Museum
Learn all about Andrew Ellicott, one of Ellicott City’s founders, in a museum that also shows off some beautiful historic masonry.
Take A Walking Tour Through Historic Ellicott City
So much of Ellicott City’s history is still standing, including buildings from the 1700s and 1800s that have fascinating stories worth knowing and incredible architecture worth seeing. If you’d like to get a good view into that history, you can take a walking tour through Historic Ellicott City and stop at dozens of buildings and sites with stories to tell, from the First County Fire Station (built in the late 1800s, now holding historic memorabilia) to the Ellicott Cemetery (established in the late 1700s by the brothers and millers who built the foundation on which the city was developed).
See The Thomas Isaac Log Cabin
A rustic building built in the late 1700s, the Thomas Isaac Log Cabin packs big historical interest in a small structure. By visiting, you can learn a lot about Ellicott City’s settlement, how it was developed, and what its early settlers’ lives were like.
Celebrate First Fridays
Shop late in Historic Ellicott City on the first Friday of the month, April through September. Plus, you’ll enjoy live music and specials at shops and spaces all around downtown.
