Englewood Post Offices
Since August 18, 1896, Englewood residents have been served by a local post office. Mail for the few permanent residents of early Englewood was brought to El Jobean by boat from Punta Gorda.

Josephine Cortes Originated First Pioneer Days Celebration
Most areas in the United States have four seasons. Here in Englewood we often refer to two - "The Season" and the rest of the year. "The Season" starts in November and runs until April and features the arrival and stay of snowbirds in our town. Once these folks head back north, Englewood businesses and residents become the mainstay of the community.
