A post office called Ellerslie has been in operation since 1828. The name of the community is believed to have origins from a character in the Waverley Novels written by Sir Walter Scott named Captain Ellerslie.
Ellerslie is located along Alternate U.S. Route 27 and Georgia State Route 85, which run northeast to southwest through the city, leading southwest 18 miles (29 km) to Columbus and northeast 5 miles (8 km) to Waverly Hall. The two highways meet Georgia State Route 315 in the city to form a very short concurrency in the city limits. Atlanta is 93 miles (150 km) by road to the northeast. Ellerslie is approximately 722 feet (220 m) above sea level. It is located in the Piedmont region of the state.
The community is home to one of the seven schools in the county:
