An 1888 drawing of Englewood by JR Bates Real Estate Company shows three precious waterways—the South Platte, Bear Creek and Little Dry Creek—meandering through the area. That water drew prospectors and settlers to the area. Two Bur Oak trees from the era still survive. Planted in approximately 1870, the trees are about 11 feet in diameter and are ranked as the #3 and #5 most famous Bur Oak trees in the state.
