Both buildings, along with others in the area, are listed on the National Register of Historical Places.
For a more modern view of Westminster, visit City Hall, where you can climb the 181 stairs to the top of the bell tower for a fabulous view of the entire metro area and the Rocky Mountains (please see the General Services front desk at City Hall for more information on climbing the bell tower.
