The Ellis Neighborhood is a corner of Boston that is rich in history, art, architecture, and cultural diversity. The term “Ellis Neighborhood”, as used in our By-laws, shall mean the area highlighted below:

We're home to the Animal Rescue League, Benjamin Franklin Institute of Technology, Boston Ballet, Boston Center for the Arts, The Calderwood Pavilion, Community Music Center of Boston, Ellis Early Learning, Boston’s hottest restaurants, intimate cafes and bistros and great shops. From arts to commerce, the Ellis has a wealth of offerings that make it one of Boston's truly great neighborhoods.

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.


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.
