Ellendale is an unincorporated community in Shelby County, Tennessee, United States. Ellendale (as having been annexed by Bartlett, Tennessee a few years ago) is part of the Memphis metropolitan area.


The first railroad to Shelby County was the Memphis & Ohio Railroad, stretching from Memphis to Paris, Tennessee in 1856. In 1872, the Louisville & Nashville, or L&N Railroad, bought the Memphis & Ohio Railroad and sponsored a contest to rename the community near Bond's Station depot. "Ellendale" was chosen as a play-on-words of the abbreviation L&N.[2]


Ellendale appears on the United States Geological Survey map, bordered on the north by the community of Brunswick, on the west by the neighborhood of Raleigh on the south by the city of Bartlett, and on the east by the city of Lakeland.
