History: Small Elizabeth Park rests nestled against the St. Johns River, between two elegant homes in the Avondale section of Jacksonville. Providing a panoramic view of the river, the park resides at the end of the long, one-block Elizabeth Place subdivision, developed by Stockton Broome in 1914. The development and the park are named for his daughter. His home, built in 1914 at 1845 Elizabeth Place, was designed by famed Jacksonville architect H.J. Klutho, and featured Riverside Avondale’s first private swimming pool. Stockton Broome’s grandfather was a former governor of Florida. He entered the real estate business in 1907, and in addition to Elizabeth Place, Mr. Broome also developed the one-block Willow Branch Terrace.
