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.
