History

The first settlers arrived around 1806. The Town of Ellicott was established in 1812 from the Town of Pomfret and was one of the first three towns in the county. As such, part of Ellicott was used to form the Towns of Busti (1823), Carroll (1825), and Poland (1825), although some territory was later re-annexed to Ellicott from Busti and Carroll.

The City of Jamestown was formed from part of Ellicott (in 1886).
