Presentation on Broadmoor Village

Author, Dave Crimmen, will speak about his book, Broadmoor Village, on Saturday, November 10 at 1 p.m.  Crimmen will describe how the small north San Mateo County community of Broadmoor Village has stayed independent, while avoiding annexation from a neighboring city, suffering through budget crises and surviving natural disasters.  The Stoneson Company built this subdivision during the years after World War II with the idea that returning veterans and their families would be interested in affordable housing at this location.  Constructed before Henry Doelger created Westlake, Westmoor, St. Francis and other communities that were annexed to Daly City, Broadmoor’s independent residents repeatedly not only resisted annexation from Daly City, but chose to stay an unincorporated community as well.  Crimmen grew up in Broadmoor, living there for 30 years.  This program is free to the public with the price of admission to the Museum. This presentation is part of the Museum’s monthly Courthouse Docket program and is sponsored by the Cypress Lawn Heritage Foundation.
