History & History Related Items

Westminster history:

An early settler here was Jim Baker. He came in 1859 and operated a ferry and store across Clear Creek. The first permanent settler was Pleasant DeSpain who built a home here in 1870. Not much later, more settlers came to DeSpain Junction as it was then known. The little community continued to grow and added business as well as homes and ranches. The railroad arrived in 1881. A developer, C.J. Harris, arrived in 1885. He bought up many homes and later the town was renamed Harris or Harris Park.

A University was eventually built and called Westminster University of Colorado. It later closed. The town voted to become a city and incorporated in 1911. At that time, the name was changed to Westminster in honor of the Westminster University.
