Map of Lubbock County

Broadview is on U.S. Highway 84 and the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway, within a mile of the northwestern city limit of Lubbock in Lubbock County. A small settlement grew up around a Santa Fe switch, named Broadview by railroad company officials, when the line built through the area in 1913.
