Ellis Hollow is a community at the southeastern boundary of Ithaca, New York. Although small and in a rural setting, Ellis Hollow is rich in history and beautiful in setting. Over the years the people of Ellis Hollow have come together in the spirit of friendship to form a neighborhood committee which has built not only a Community Center - but a way of life for its residents.
As we move from the 20th to the 21st Century, The Ellis Hollow Community Center and its Board will, within the next few years, celebrate a half Century of community involvement and support. This Website is dedicated to - not only the Founders of The Ellis Hollow Community Association - but also to those individuals both living and now gone, named and unnamed, who have kept the traditions and the memories alive for all the residents who live here...

Current News

Happy Fall Equinox and sending a hugely GRATEFUL thank you to all who supported The EHCC Annual Country Fair on September 10th!  It was a completely wonderful day from dawn to dusk that included horse drawn wagon rides, delicious eats, and games and fun for kids of all ages! This is the single fundraiser for the Community Center, raising 90% of our operating costs and every dollar raised goes directly back into the building and grounds for the benefit of all who use the facility year long! Hundreds of volunteer hours contribute to the success of the event including donations from area businesses in the Silent Auction - find their names listed below. 
Again, thank you for your support and please consider joining our amazing crew of minions who make it all possible: volunteer opportunities are always available!  
See you soon at the Ellis Hollow Community Center and next year at The Fair!
