Broadview Nursery


Address: 6660 Simms St.

Webber experimented with many different kinds of trees and flowers. He belonged to the Peony Society and his catalogue was devoted to various peony specimens. From his ledgers, it is evident that many fine shrubs, trees and flowers at many Arvada homes came from the Broadview Nursery. Before his death, Broadview Nursery was declared a Botanical Reserve in 1949 by the Colorado Forestry and Horticultural Association. This was the forerunner of the Botanic Gardens, which was organized and built in 1951.
