Englewood History

Englewood was founded by William Green Russell, a prospector from Georgia, and 12 other miners in the mid 1800s. All of these men were on their way to California in search of gold when they stopped in Colorado to pan the local streams. They were successful in finding gold and built a Placer Camp in the area. More settlers were attracted to this area when they learned about the discovery of gold here. One of the earliest major landowners here was Thomas Skerritt, who arrived in 1864 and claimed a plot of 640 acres. He is now known as the ‘Father of Englewood.’
