Ellison Bay is an unincorporated community located in northern Door County, Wisconsin, U.S., within the town of Liberty Grove and is located on Wisconsin State Highway 42 along the Bay of Green Bay. The community was founded in 1872 by John Eliasen, a Danish immigrant. Lumber and fishing were important businesses in the 19th century, replaced by fruit growing in the early 20th century, and today tourism is the main business.
Important attractions include The Clearing, a private center for adult education that was originally established by Jens Jensen, the prominent landscape architect. The Clearing offers courses on many subjects with emphasis on the arts, humanities and nature.
