Englewood Cliffs History

In Englewood in 1791, a farmer warned Washington’s men about the advancing British army and changed the course of the nation’s history. Had an encounter taken place between the two armies, Washington’s ill-equipped forces would have surely lost to Cornwalli’s army. William O. Allison, the first mayor, was the prime supporter of the region’s separation from Englewood in 1895. Englewood Cliffs was established as a borough on May 10, 1895.
