It was a fun evening on May 21, 2024. Digger entertained us and taught us all about the Erie Canal, which was fascinating. Free, sold out event, was enjoyed by all present. Great participation for the sing-along. More events to come later.

Broadview Heights was part of Brecksville & North Royalton Townships from 1811 until November 30, 1926 when a vote taken by residents to incorporate passed 101 to 7, thus forming, in 1927 the Village of Broadview Heights with Floyd Harris, Mayor and Lloyd Harris, Town Marshall.  Broadview Heights became a city in 1960 and with the hilly terrain and desirable location, known as "Highest of the Heights” continues to grow and prosper.
The Broadview Heights Historical Society was organized to preserve and disseminate historical information to interested parties of our community and surrounding areas. Understanding the history of our community is basic to our democratic way of life, gives us an understanding of our state and nation, and helps us better to appreciate our American heritage. Membership is open to all for a nominal annual fee.
The door to our museum opened in 2019 and we are anxious to share the wonderful artifacts that will help you see our history and our hometown heroes.  

The Grand Opening of our building was on September 14, 2019. It is truly our dream come true. Our opening displays were a tribute to the early families of Broadview Heights and a Salute to the Military and our Vets. We were fortunate to have one of our residents share his amazing military collection with us.
