The original inhabitants of this area were the Lenni-Lenape Native Americans belonging to the "turtle clan." The first modern settlers were the Dutch, but they did not make any significant efforts to settle the area, hence it remained largely unsettled during Dutch rule. It was only when the Dutch surrendered their territory to England that the area began to show rapid growth. Englewood was incorporated as city in March, 1899.
