Historic Ellicott City, Inc. is pleased to announce that our administrative office has moved to the St. John’s Cemetery Lodge on St. Johns Lane in Ellicott City, Maryland.

Patapsco Heritage Greenway was the recipient of a grant made possible from proceeds from our 2018 Show House for repairs and restoration of the stone facade of their properties on Tonge Row in Old Ellicott City. Work on restoring the building’s wood window frames and sash, adjusting and improving water drainage from the building’s facade and foundation, and removing non-historic and inappropriate doors and shutters has all been completed and the grant funds have been disbursed.
