Englewood is a census-designated place (CDP) in Charlotte and Sarasota counties in the U.S. state of Florida. As of the 2010 census, it had a population of 14,863.
The Sarasota County portion of Englewood is part of the North Port–Sarasota–Bradenton Metropolitan Statistical Area, while the Charlotte County portion is part of the Punta Gorda Metropolitan Statistical Area.
Archeological digs in what is now Englewood discovered ceramics belonging to both the Weeden Island culture and Safety Harbor culture.
One of the earliest white settlers in the area was a man named William Goff, who arrived by schooner from Tampa in 1878. He settled a piece of land just a few miles south of where Englewood would be platted. On July 3, 1895, a post office was established in the area as well. The original plat of Englewood was recorded and filed on August 17, 1896. The home lots were 1-acre (0.40 ha), and the grove lots—likely intended for citrus—were 10 acres (4.0 ha). The area was developed by three brothers, and the name Englewood came from their hometown, Englewood, Chicago. Some of the street, such as Dearborn, Harvard, and Yale, are from Chicago. The Great Freeze of 1894 and 1895, along with a bad freeze in 1896, led to the decimation of many local orange plants. For this reason, by 1897, a Manatee County General Directory listed fish as the chief product for Englewood. In 1898, the Englewood Inn was opened, a relatively large hotel with 16 rooms. The hotel serviced visitors from up north until it burned down in 1909.
