In 1858, gold was discovered near the mouth of Little Dry Creek where it flows into the South Platte River at Dartmouth Avenue, in present day Englewood. Permanent settlers soon followed the prospectors. The area's first permanent settler, Thomas Skerritt, arrived in 1864. In 1903, a large number of scattered settlements in the area banded together to form the City of Englewood. Industrial manufacturing and health care, represented by Swedish Hospital, anchored the city's economy, just as they do today.
