Westminster is located in the western region of Adams County, Colorado with Jefferson County to the North East. To the North is Broomfield and Thornton and to the South is Arvada.
It is a city with a rich history, particularly if you have an interest in the Gold Rush era. In 1858, gold was discovered in the South Platte River Valley. This garnered national attention to the area and eventually it was renamed Westminster, but it was a circuitous route to get there with a few other name changes first!
Many settlers came here from the East over the next few years and decided to settle and make Westminster, Colorado their home, rather than heading on further to California.
It was an area that was rich in natural history too. Wildlife such as Buffalo and Antelope made the city their natural habitat.
The city was first renamed DeSpain Junction in the 1870s, after the first permanent settler to the area, who was called Pleasant DeSpain. After this time, other notable people became attracted to the area. One of these was a property developer called CJ Harris, arriving in the city in the late 1880s. After spending time on building work in the area, it was renamed Harris, in his honor.
However, it was only in the 1890s, when construction had begun on Westminster Castle that the city eventually settled on that as it’s name, became incorporated and thereafter known as Westminster.
