OFFERING YOU THE BEST GO-TO SOLUTIONS FOR GARAGE REPAIR SERVICES IN ELLINGTON AND SURROUNDING AREA.
The area later to be Ellington was originally known to local indians as Weexskaschuck, meaning ‘Great Marsh’. Early settlers called it Goshen after the Biblical settlement.
In 1671, the town of Windsor purchased East Windsor and Ellington to recover land lost in the Connecticut-Massachusetts border dispute, although no-one attempted to settle the fertile region for another five decades.
In 1733, Ellington was founded as a parish of Windsor, but split in 1768 to incorporate itself as a town in its own right.
On January 1st, 1967, Ellington made national headlines when residents assisted pilot Frank Robinson’s plane, which was experiencing trouble with its single engine in foggy conditions that had cut visibility to 200 feet. Under the direction of local Resident State Trooper Lionel Lebreche, residents of Ellington descended on the nearby unlit Hyde Field airstrip and illuminated the runway with the headlights of their cars, allowing Robinson to land safely without a scratch.
