Westminster celebrated 100 years in 2011
The City of Westminster celebrated its 100th anniversary throughout 2011, and the community joined in the party!
The city's official birth was on April 4, 1911, when 35 citizens voted to incorporate their community into Westminster. Since then, the city has thrived, growing into a community that offers great neighborhoods, excellent schools and award-winning public facilities.
