Aberdeen, Washington, was incorporated as a city in 1888. Its primary industries were logging, fishing, ship building, and the retail services to support a growing population. Between 1903 and 1930, the upper Broadway Hill was developed by the leaders of these very profitable industries. The architectural styles range from Greek Revival to Craftsman, all popular during this time period. Now Broadway Hill is the largest of three Aberdeen historic homes districts: Broadway, Scammel and Arnold Hill, neighborhoods which comprise, according to the Washington Department of Archeology and Historic Preservation, one of the largest intact historic homes inventory in the state. A printed brochure is in the works. We expect to begin adding photos and histories to the website in late 2019 or early 2020.
