Broadmoor was developed on land that had been logged by the Puget
Mill Company for sixty years. In 1920, the parcel was split in two.
The western 230 acres (930,000 m²) were given to the city, who
developed Washington Park
on the site; the eastern 200 acres (800,000 m²) were developed as
Broadmoor by a group of businessmen that included E. G. Ames,
general manager of Puget Mill.
