Several earlier settlements consolidated in 1903 as Englewood (1903, 5,306 feet), the largest town in the county until overtaken by Littleton after World War II. Streetcar lines and train service, most memorably the horse-drawn Cherrelyn streetcar serving the South Broadway commercial district, enabled Englewood to become a major early Denver suburb. During the early 1990s, Englewood gave a facelift to this commercial strip and transformed trashy Dry Creek with paved paths and parks.
