Enhancing the growing business community are two medical clinics and a dental clinic, three hotels and two retirement homes; three banks and a regional telecommunications company. In addition Ellendale boasts a modern swimming pool and park facilities, an ambulance service, police department and volunteer Fire Department, a Chamber of Commerce, senior citizens’ center, historical society, public library, and museum. Nearby, hunting and fishing opportunities abound.
Setting the tone for Ellendale’s cultural life is its active arts community, which is well on the way to restoring the old opera house to its original splendor. Art shows featuring local and regional artists and national shows, such as Smithsonian exhibits along with musical concerts, dramatic plays, and workshops of all kinds challenge and engage the community.
Come enjoy Ellendale. It just might be the place for you.
