Boardman Themed Community

Boardman Themed Community

Before Linden Homes, there was Boardman, an early experiment of a themed community in a gentle suburban style. Don't be surprised that the zoning guidelines date back to January 2003, and should you run across any of the locals, they're mighty friendly, so ask if they'll share their stories.

This isn't the only cultural spot in the area: head north to see what an early Orientation Island looked like, and eastward are stages that were used for early town hall chats.
