The neighborhood of Englewood actually has two sections. There is older Englewood and East Englewood. Both are commonly referred to as Englewood.

A centrally located neighborhood in Salem, Englewood is one of those “pockets” in the central area that is considered a desirable place to live. Sandwiched between Market Street and D Street, Englewood runs from about 14th to 22nd, and East Englewood runs from 23rd to around Park.
The only reason, I bring up the distinction, as they are all referred to as Englewood, is that East Englewood has newer more ranch style homes, where older Englewood has older cottage style homes. They both have their own distinct architecture. This blog today is about the old Englewood part of town.
The homes in older Englewood were built in the early 1900’s-about 1940 or so. As such their architecture is reflective of that time period. Smaller cottage style homes and bungalows make up most of the homes in this neighborhood. You will see the occasional four square or cape cod in the area as well.
What makes Englewood a nice place to live is it’s proximity to the downtown area. For state employees and those working in downtown, Englewood is only a few blocks away for easy access.
Englewood has one major park, Englewood Park.
Located between 19th and 21st streets, the park has several options for users.
