It is part of the Baltimore–Washington Metropolitan Area. The population was 65,834 at the U.S. Decennial Census of 2010. It is the county seat of Howard County. Founded in 1772, the town contains the B. & O. Railroad Museum's branch at the Ellicott City Station, built in 1830, and the first terminus of the initial line. The downtown historic district is located in the valley of the Tiber River, with its east end abutting the upper Western Branch of the Patapsco River. As of the 2000 U.S. Census, Ellicott City surpassed Towson, Maryland (county seat of neighboring Baltimore County) for the first time, as the largest unincorporated county seat in the country. The downtown area in the Patapsco Valley is often called "Historic Ellicott City" or "Old Ellicott City", to distinguish it from the surrounding suburban unincorporated area that extends north to the Baltimore County line, south to the other large unincorporated town in Howard County, Columbia, and west to West Friendship.
