Ellicott City is primarily known for its historic district and railway station. The Ellicott City Station is the oldest train station in the United States. It was built in 1830, right at the beginning of the industrial age in this country. If you visit Ellicott City, you will enjoy the many sights and cultural offerings the historic district has to offer. However, Ellicott City is more than just an historic district. There are also a lot of surrounding communities in the unincorporated surrounding area.
