History

Through 1919, a little more than 1/3 of what is now Ellport existed as the Ellwood City Country Club. The portion that was the Country Club is to the West Side of Golf Avenue. The Clubhouse was located on the property near 111 Fourth Street.

In 1920, a realty company from Pittburgh bought the Golf Course and sold lots for about $600 each. In addition, the realty company began to purchase farms to the east of Golf Avenue from families such as the Deemers, the Mahoneys and the Gartleys.

At this time, this area was still part of Wayne Township. In 1929 residents petitioned the courts for Ellport to become its own borough. This petition was signed by 183 residents, including 10 people who could not write their names and signed with an "X".

The borough was founded by a court order on February 15, 1929 signed by President Judge Daniel M Foley of Lawrence County.
