A few longtime local residents look back and share some early Englewood memories.

• Jack Tate: “I can remember when we came here in 1926, there were horses housed under the building that now’s Kelly’s Tavern. That was on the east side. Then I think a garage took over the stable area. I also remember a small barbershop being there. There were living quarters up above. I don’t think it became a tavern until the 1930s. I remember for a long time it was Whyte’s Tavern. They sold some food, they had a gas pump, and I think they rented rooms.”
