As with many parts of Denver, Englewood began with gold. In
1858 William Green Russell discovered gold in Little Dry Creek.
Two years later it became Orchard Place after Thomas Skerritt,
considered the founder of the city, built a home in the area.

Over time the area has built, torn down, and rebuilt itself and is
now a vibrant city complete with a public library, light trail, and
water park. It is home to two of Denver’s largest hospitals – Craig
Hospital and the Swedish Medical Center.

The city is split into many municipalities each with their own
personality and vigor. A reservoir and multiple parks give way to
the active and adventurous lifestyle so many Coloradoans enjoy.
Englewood supports the arts by hosting art contests, dancing,
painting groups, and writing clubs.
