Founded as Harrisburg- 1841

—The Historic National Road in Ohio —

Harrisburg, Ohio, was platted three years after the National Road reached Randolph Township. The name of the town and that of its post office, Iamton, were changed to Englewood in 1899. Located at the intersection of Dayton-Covington Pike and the National Road, the town offered lodging to weary travelers coming from all directions.
Local Photographer, Edwin C. Sinks documented many sites along the National Road near Englewood in the early 1900s, including the covered bridge over the Stillwater River east of town, the Harrisburg Hotel, and other business establishments. The old wooden bridge was damaged by the 1913 flood and was dismantled shortly after December 1922 when the National Road was rerouted south over the newly constructed Englewood Dam.
Englewood was served by the Dayton, Covington and Piqua Traction Line, which ran north / south along Main Street (Ohio Route 48) from 1902 to 1926. The Cincinnati, Hamilton and Dayton Railroad crossed National Road on the west edge of town, next to the elevator and lumberyard. Local railroad service via the C.H.&D. stopped in 1923.
Automobiles became the preferred mode of travel in the mid 1920s. Service stations were common along the highway by 1926, when the road was designated U.S. Route 40. The Palace Garage, a 1928 Ford sales and service center, was located on the northeast
corner of West National Road and North Walnut. In the 1930's, the old hotel building was moved south of the main intersection in Englewood to make way for a "cottage style" Pure Oil station which opened in 1936. It continued in use until the 1960s.
