Old Englewood Village began as a trail and a small store with a 250-foot dock out into the bay in the late 1800s and early 1900s. Stores, restaurants, bars, and big dreams slowly crept into the area.
During the land boom of the1920’s, grandiose plans were in place for casinos, a new train depot, and even a luxury home development for movie stars and other celebrities. The Great Depression and numerous storms tested the resiliency of the town. Most of the plans disintegrated. But the families of Englewood came together even when the city was falling apart, defining the meaning of “community” which remains to this day.
Today, Old Englewood Village and the areas surrounding it, maintain their old-world charm and continue to attract new visitors and residents. Arts and music are everywhere. Quaint shops line the streets. You can find fresh Florida produce and local crafts at the farmer’s market. After checking out the village, you can take some time off your feet with tantalizing food and drink at your choice of a wide variety of local bistros and restaurants.
