History of Ellsville

Population growth across the United States has virtually left Ellisville, Missouri unaffected, since it continues to maintain its small town atmosphere, created in the mid 1800’s. The city was originally settled by Captain James Harvey Ferris prior to 1837. Ferris was accompanied by his own contingent of slaves. By hand, the slaves made bricks and constructed the home that later became known as “Ellis House.”  Vespasian Ellis, a newspaper editor later bought he house from Captain Ferris. It was mere coincidence that Ellis settled at the house, which was called the “Brick Place” because it was built at a time before the town actually had its present day name.  At some point, William Al Hereford became owner of the “Brick Place” property. Hereford is credited with naming the town Ellisville, not after its previous owner, but rather after his former post office in Virginia, which was situated in the town of Ellisville. Ellis House was an historical site until it was destroyed by fire in 1969.
