Englewood

Englewood, New Jersey

History

According to popular belief, Englewood Township – the predecessor of the city, was named after the Engle family. Being the first principally English-speaking community on the New Jersey side of Hudson River, this settlement was also called the “English Neighborhood”. The region remained mainly unsettled during Dutch rule until the entire area of New Netherland was surrendered to England by them in 1664. After that, the area experienced diversified settlements including English, Huguenot and Dutch. This diversity can still be recalled by following the street names like Lawrence, Moore from English, Demarest from Huguenot and Lydecker, Brinckerhoff, Van Brunt from Dutch. The region was incorporated as a city in 1899 by merging the remaining parts of Englewood Township and parts of Ridgefield Township.
