There is some evidence that original Englewood real estate was home to Native Americans, but not much is known about them. It is written, however, that they did not war with white settlers. In 1789, the Stillwater Valley was surveyed, and these became the first people to detail what are now Englewood properties. Pennsylvanian Daniel Rasor built the first structure in Englewood in 1813. Quakers from North Carolina and Pennsylvania settled the area. When the Dayton-Covington Turnpike and the National Road were built in 1836, settlers' produce, timber and other products could find a wider range of customers. Up to then, New Orleans, via the Mississippi, was their major market. Englewood's population remained around 400 to 600 until later in the 20th century, when the population was 13,000.
