Englewood Beach Subdivision


Questions of population density are nothingnew in the Saugatuck area. Joyce Inch sends
this map of the Englewood Beach subdivision that was received in 1901 by the Allegan
County Registrar of deeds.It shows 101 building lots on the lakeshore just north of Campbell Road.


Fortunately the entire plat was abandonedthe next year and the strip of lakeshore became Shorewood and Hemlock Terracesubdivisions with far fewer lots.


The only thing left of this map is the crookin the road that is here labeled "Lake Shore St."
