Indians occupied the territory known as Broadview Heights until 1811, when the first white man, Seth Paine, settled there. He was sent by Colonel John Breck as a surveyor of the land and was given a compensation of 200 acres. The land that Colonel Breck surveyed was called Brecksville Township, and today the cities of Broadview Heights, Brecksville and North Royalton make up the land. The township consisted of 21.28 square miles, and it was sold for $1.52 an acre.
A plank road was constructed from Wallings Corners to the Cleveland city limits in 1829. On November 30, 1926, a vote was held to recognize the village of Broadview Heights. The results were 101 people for and 7 against the new village. A few years later the residents built a city hall and established a part-time Fire Department.
