Ellicottville is a town in Cattaraugus County, New York, United States. The population was 1,598 at the 2010 census. The town is named after Joseph Ellicott, principal land agent of the Holland Land Company.The town of Ellicottville includes a village also called Ellicottville. The town is in the north-central part of the county, north of the city of Salamanca.HistoryThe town was first settled around 1815.The Town of Ellicottville was established in 1820 from the town of Franklinville (then known as Ischua). The town lost some of its territory when the town of Ashford was formed in 1824. In 1858, a small part of the town was taken to aid the formation of the town of East Otto.The Village of Ellicottville was formerly the county seat for Cattaraugus County. The county seat moved to Little Valley in 1868.Since the establishments of the Holimont and Holiday Valley ski resorts in the town, Ellicottville has seen massive gentrification as mostly Canadian ski enthusiasts have taken up part-time residences in the town. Property values in the town are significantly higher than in the rest of the county. Because the village has restrictive zoning laws that discourage national franchises from entering the village, two national chain restaurants (Burger King just south of the village, and Tim Hortons just north; the former is set to close May 2014) have set up shop in the town, just outside the village bounds.
