500 Second Avenue
(1911): Edward Broadwater
Home. A distant cousin to powerful Helena businessman, Charles A.
Broadwater, Edward was important to the Havre area, first as a clerk at
the post trading store at Fort Assinniboine, later joining Simon Pepin
in opening a store in present day Havre. Their efforts, along with
other factors, helped make Havre one of the Great Northern Railroad
division points. When this home, a fine Arts and Crafts home, was being
constructed, a fire was found under the staircase and the Fire
Department ruled it was set by an arsonist. The home was completed
anyway, and continues to be a proud member of the historic district.
