At the northern tip of the Door County Peninsula nestled against the Green Bay coast, Ellison Bay is a small town community. The town was originally founded by Danish immigrant John Eliasen and focused primarily on the lumber and fishing industries. Points of interest include the Clearing Folk School, Island Orchard Cider, and various art galleries and museums.
