Originally a sugar plantation worked by slaves, the antebellum mansion fell into disrepair after the Civil War. Major George Patten and his wife, Mary, purchased the property in 1870 and named the area Ellenton after his daughter Ellen. In 1881, the United States government designated Ellenton as an official post office site.A refining plant for Fuller's Earth was located in Ellenton along the Manatee River opened in 1903.
