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!

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.
