About Us


Who We Are

 The Friends of the Englewood Archives, Inc. began as a small group of enthusiastic supporters who met and organized to become a support group for the Archives. Incorporated as a not for profit 501(c)(3) group effective March 19, 2014, this group created a steering committee to create the managing documents and policies of the Friends. 

Our Board of Directors consists of residents of both Charlotte County and Sarasota County. Our first Board of Directors was installed on January 20, 2015 and elected the current Officers. Their first meeting took place on March 19, 2015 at the Englewood Charlotte Library.

We hold four  meetings per year, which are open to the public.

We welcome all who are interested in our history.
