History

Originally a part of East Windsor, the present day town of Ellington came to existence when it split from Windsor and incorporated itself in 1786. Agriculture fueled the town's development and growth for several decades. Between the 19th and 20th century, Ellington served as the center of a community of Jewish immigrant farmers, who later constructed the Congregation Knesseth Israel synagogue, which presently serves as an active Modern Orthodox congregation. Competition between businesses, including local markets and chain grocers has transformed Ellington into a hybrid agriculture and bedroom community.

Although Ellington does not house many museums, several exist nearby in neighboring towns, such as the New England Civil War Museum and Vernon Community Arts Center. The arts center promotes the area's local arts scene, showcasing a number of children's exhibits, cultural exhibitions and two annual judged shows.

Transportation

Automobiles serve as the dominate form of transportation in the neighborhood, while the CTTRANSIT bus division serves as the area's primary public transportation option. A small collection of taxi businesses service Tolland County, while Uber does not yet provide coverage to the area. Public parking primarily consists of residential on-street parking (with the exception of seasonal restrictions), in addition to a small distribution of lots and metered spaces. Although not within the confines of Ellington, Interstates 84 and 91 extend within close proximity of the town, while Connecticut Routes 30, 83, 74, 140 and 286 run throughout. The town has a moderately pedestrian-friendly environment, while cyclists enjoy a light spread of designated bicycle routes along main roads.

Cost

Ellington presents a cost of living approximately 14 percent higher than Hartford, while one-bedroom residences typically rent at an average cost of $931. Residents travel to the city center via CTTRANSIT for around $1.50. Gas prices sit at rates about 19 percent higher than the national average, but on the bright side, a pint of beer at a local pub only costs around $5.

Shopping

A healthy spread of independently owned boutiques and specialty shops, along with a light influence of nationally recognized chain retailers define the shopping scene in Ellington. From family-owned jewelry stores and repair centers, to hardware shops and furniture outlets, the town presents a vibrant collection of commercial attractions.

Kloter Farms more than adequately fills the position of a neighborhood furniture store, specializing in the crafting of durable outdoor structures, patio and heirloom-quality home furniture pieces. The store purchases its merchandise through skilled craftsman working from small wood shops across the North America. Locals recognize the store for its first-rate product selection, knowledgeable and amiable staff and 30-year track record as leading furniture store in Ellington.

The third generation family owned store features a top-notch sales team comprised of devoted family members and both long-term and short-term passionate employees ready to assist customers from selection to purchase loading. Residents praise Ellington Agway for its level of unparalleled customer service and top-value product selection.

Big Y World Class Market primarily accommodates Elllington's grocery needs, but residents also travel to Vernon to shop at Nature’s Grocer, a highly revered gluten-free health market. The Ellington Farmers Market supplies a collection of locally grown produce, in addition to freshly baked breads, pastries and wholesome meats and fish.

Parks

Ellington houses a light spread of small neighborhood parks and playground, but residents often travel to neighboring town of Vernon for an immerse outdoor experience. Vernon Rails-to-Trails-Hop River State Park Trail presents an atmosphere ideal for runners, cyclists and nature enthusiasts alike, complemented by a diverse population of wildlife in a breath-taking scenic landscape. Valley Falls Park has a similar environment in addition to a picnic pavilion, swimming area/beach — all well maintained.
