A Brief History Or Westminster MA
Like most of the north eastern United States, Westminster MA was founded on land that was originally lived on by the Native Americans in the area, dating back for many centuries before the Europeans settled the area in 1737. The town was initially called “Narragansett Number Two” as a nod to the many Indian tribes who lived in the region, but as the population grew, it became a district in 1759 and assumed the name Westminster, named after the minister in old England. Westminster became became fully incorporated in 1770.
