1760: BIRTH OF AN ELLICOTT

George Ellicott, son of Andrew Ellicott, was born March 28, 1760. Andrew was one of three Ellicott brothers who founded Ellicott Mills, which became Ellicott City.

George's stone house, built in 1789, was nearly destroyed in a flood in 1975 and was saved in 1987 by being moved out of the Patapsco River flood plain.
