According to Images of America: Ellington, from the Ellington Historical Society:

"The Ellington Inn was built in Rockville in 1843. After a fire destroyed the Franklin House owned by Edward O'Neil on Maple Street, this building was moved in 1908 from Rockville to the site in Ellington where it remains. It was operated as a hotel for a number of years before being rented as a dwelling and then converted to apartments after it was sold by the O'Neil heirs in 1937."
