The Broadacres subdivision was developed in the 1920's. It is one of the most significant high-end neighborhoods in the city from that period. The neighborhood was listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1980.
Broadacres was designed by architect William Ward Watkin and the 26 large lots were arranged around a long horseshoe-shaped boulevard planted with live oaks, creating a leafy canopy colonnade down the boulevard of this exclusive neighborhood.
Broadacres was designated a historic district in 2007. It is significant as one of Houston's early master planned communities. The extensive landscaping and rows of oak trees along North and South Boulevard give the neighborhood a unified identity.
