The Broadmoor Ranch House Historic District is located just off of Metcalf Avenue between 68th Street and 69th Terrace in Overland Park and includes 27 contributing residences out of a total of 33. It is significant in the areas of community planning and development and architecture, and for its associations with the suburban patterns of development of the City of Overland Park, in particular the development of the community’s early post-World War II Ranch House subdivisions. The 1953-1959 Broadmoor Subdivision is an early post-World War II example of a variation in residential patterns of subdivision development in Overland Park in which existing lots were re-platted and basic restrictions for the lots were filed by the developer. The development of the district within a six-year period created a significant and distinguishable entity that is part of the district's associations with the patterns of development in the community. The district embodies distinctive characteristics of a type, period, and method of construction. Its individual houses reflect a variety of the popular Ranch House style designs erected for the middle-classes at the same time it is an early representative example in Overland Park of the distinctively homogeneous appearance which was common in post-World War II subdivisions. This is the first exclusively post-World War II residential district in Kansas to be nominated to the National Register of Historic Places.
