Ashland | Englewood | Lexington | Sitka
Founded by Colonel C. D. Perry in 1884, Englewood was named after his hometown in Illinois. It was north of Five Mile Creek until 1907 when the town moved south of the creek because of an illegal money-making scheme and the failure to secure good titles to the lots in the old town. The new town soon had a good number of businesses such as hotels, pool halls, a barber shop, a jeweler, and a concrete block factory.
The ethnicity of its settlers is unknown.
