The land was first claimed by settlers in 1868 and William Wilson built the first log cabin where the town now stands. A store was opened in 1870, and the town turned into a little post for travelers to buy supplies at. In the following years, the town grew significantly, starting a bank, a postal service, and a newspaper. This was thanks to John A. Shoudy, the man who bought 170 acres around the small town and named it after his wife, Mary Ellen. The town flourished, even more, when the first train of the Northern Pacific Railroad reached Ellensburg in 1886, bringing more building supplies and a greater population.
