Colorado Main Streets
A Digital Walk Through Westminster History

WELCOME TO OUR VIRTUAL TOUR OF HISTORIC WESTMINSTER.

Westminster became a spot on the Colorado State map in 1911; when the people living in the Village of Harris decided to form a town government. After the first homesteaders arrived in 1870, the population gradually increased in the area. By 1910, services such as water were needed to support the community. The Village of Harris, named after C. J. Harris, was incorporated as the Town of Westminster, CO on April 4, 1911. The town was named for Westminster University, built in the 1890s, on Crown Point.

WE HOPE YOU ENJOY THIS TOUR OF HISTORIC BUILDINGS & LANDMARKS.
