Westminster is located both in Adams and Jefferson counties in Colorado. Westminster was originally settled by Kentucky farmer Pleasant DeSpain in 1870, who built his home on 160 acres home near what is now West 76th Avenue and Lowell Street. Initially the town was called DeSpain Junction. In 1911, the town name was changed to Westminster through a vote.
Westminster is home to a 14-story Bell Tower at City hall, a tribute to the clock tower of Westminster Palace in England known as Big Ben. When the Bell Tower was unveiled in 1986, an English Oak was gifted to Westminster, Colorado by Westminster, England.
