Located in north-central of the state of Colorado and is part of the Adams and Jefferson counties, Westminster is a suburb of Denver. Historically, the city was first settled in 1863 by a homesteader named Pleasant DeSpain, and wherein the DeSpain Junction was called after, the town was then developed and cultivated to become a shipping point for the local farm produce in the region. Westminster's local economy and development was stimulated after the arrival of the Denver, Western, and Pacific Railway and the establishment and formation of the Farmer's High Line Canal and Reservoir, and other irrigation companies that significantly contributed to the city's growth. Today, Westminster is a center of high-technology manufacturers and is home to several major healthcare facilities.
