“Dr. Laurence Broe was the first doctor in Hammond, and the second in all of Maple Ridge. He acquired this property in the mid-1920s, and built this elaborate Colonial Revival residence for his family, while retaining the original smaller house as his office. Located on a prominent corner site, this was one of the more impressive homes in Hammond at the time. The unusual gambrel roof is a typical feature of the Colonial style. The Broe Residence remains in substantially intact condition, with the major change to its appearance being a later coat of stucco over the original wooden siding.”
