Ellisville is a city of slightly more than 9,000 people on 4.39 square miles of land 13 miles west of St. Louis. It is bordered by Clarkson Valley, Ballwin, Wildwood and unincorporated St. Louis County. The city was named No. 25 on a best places to live in America list in 2009 by Money magazine. Although the name Ellisville is thought to have come from one of two different origins, the city was founded sometime before 1837 by a man named Captain James Harvey Ferris of Kentucky. The historic Ellis House, also known as Brick Place, gets is second name from the brick construction commissioned by James Harvey Ferris.

Captain Ferris sold the house and land to Vespasian Ellis, editor of the following publications: the Old School Democrat, the Native American Bulletin, the Washington Temperance Paper, and the Native American. Ellis became the United States consul to Venezuela in 1842 so he sold the house and land to William A. Hereford of Virginia. Hereford had a post office in Ellisville, Virginia, and is credited for naming the city Ellisville, although it is unclear whether the name came from his former post office or the Ellis House’s former owner. Hereford opened the city’s first post office in Ellisville in 1843.

The house and land then sold to the following owners: Samuel Wilson, then Major Clarkson of Kentucky, for whom Clarkson Road is named, then Captain Benjamin F. Hutchinson of Kentucky, who subdivided the farm into small lots in 1868, then Adam Doering, and finally John Henry William Rasch. The house was razed in 1969. Ellisville is divided by Manchester Road and Clarkson Road and is equidistant between Interstate 44 and Interstate 64, making it a great location for future drivers getting ready to learn how to drive.
