McMinn County - Englewood
Several shops, mills and houses were built to take advantage of the railroad construction. By 1907, the Eureka Cotton Mill moved there and became the primary establishment in town.
In the following years, the name was changed to Englewood at the suggestion of Nancy Chesnutt because it reminded her of a home of Robin Hood she had read about when she was a child.
