The Ellis South End Neighborhood Association
The Ellis South End Neighborhood Association works to preserve and enhance the quality of life in the neighborhood by bringing residents and businesses together in a variety of ways. The Association, a membership organization, was started in 1964 when a group of concerned neighbors felt the need for a community organization. Incorporated as a non-profit in 1982, the purpose of the Ellis South End Neighborhood Association today is to advocate for the neighborhood by providing a forum for discussing local and citywide issues, planning social activities and projects that build relationships among neighbors, creating an effective communication link with the City of Boston, and working to keep our neighbors informed of news and decisions that impact the community. We appreciate your interest and welcome your participation!

Love Your Block Spring Clean-up May 4th at 9:00 AM
We need your help! The Ellis Neighborhood Association will be focusing on caring for the tree pits on Clarendon and Berkeley Streets during the city's Love Your Block Spring Clean Up. Join us to rake and clean out the winter debris accumulated in the tree pits followed by some mulching which is being provided by the City of Boston. We need many volunteers to help spruce up these tree pits! We are also in need of wheel-barrels during the clean up. Please sign up here if interested or if you have a wheel-barrel to loan us!
Whether you're a long-time resident or first-time visitor, you will find that Ellis’ streets are paved with great history and architecture and that there is always something fun and exciting to see, do and enjoy.
UNIQUE ARCHITECTURE OF THE ELLIS
The Ellis is located in the South End whose architecture consists largely of mid-nineteenth century bowfronts that are predominantly red-brick structures, of mixed residential and commercial uses. The most common styles are Renaissance Revival, Italianate and French Second Empire. Today, the South End is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is a Boston Landmark District. It is also the largest Victorian residential district in North America. The South End Historical Society works on matters of historic preservation.
