The goal of this campaign is to construct a storage garage and restore the miniature train belonging to the Ellis Railroad Museum. The miniature train is a one-third scale replica of GM’s 1950s Aerotrain, 1 of 4 ever built, that has been providing rides since 1993 on a three-quarter mile-long track.
The Foundation, along with community partners, has put in a memorial walkway, beautified downtown, established the Ellis Food Boxes and Pantry, planted trees, established the Ellis Alliance office, restored the miniature train, brought a waterslide to the new pool, and much more.
The Foundation is dedicated to improving the quality of life in Ellis from granting funds to local organizations, feeding our community, and raising money to improve community spaces. Giving to the Community Foundation of Ellis is a great way to invest in the future.
