In 1858, gold was discovered in the South Platte River Valley which attracted settlers heading to California’s gold rush. Settler Pleasant DeSpain built a home in the area in 1870 and the area became known as DeSpain Junction. Real estate developer C.J. Harris purchased the DeSpain farm in 1885 and renamed the area Harris. In 1908, Westminster University of Colorado was built in the architectural style of the fabled universities of England. In 1911, the people of Harris voted to incorporate and change the name to Westminster.
Today, Westminster includes 3,000-acres of open space and a network of trails including Big Dry Creek Trail. Standley Lake Regional Park is a highlight enjoy by residents. Local golf courses include the Legacy Ridge, Walnut Creek, and Highland Hills. Westminster is home to the famous Butterfly Pavilion.
