Centrally located in the Historic District, our tourism center building was once a post office. The friendly staff is happy to answer any questions you have plus provide maps and brochures. As experts in the Ellicott City area, they can recommend the must see historic sites and suggest things to do while visiting. 

Amenities include:
Public restrooms, lounge area and phone charging stations.

Informational panels detailing the history of the building and the New Deal murals in the lobby as well as quick studies of Ellicott City and Columbia are on display.

Countywide information is available on a daily basis through Tourism & Promotion’s own annual Visitor Guide as well as through brochures provided by the organizations partners who offer dining, lodging, shopping, entertainment venues and more all over the county.
