Westminster, MA was founded in 1733 although the first permanent settlement of the town didn't take place until 1737 and the community wasn't accepted as a town until 1770. In the early 20th century, townspeople made chairs and manufactured paper. In 1828 the famous Westminster Cracker Factory was established and still stands today.
With its blend of history and historic countryside, Westminster is a comfortable town to call home. Suburban development of the town on attractive lakeside sites and in sections of town with Wachusett Mountain views has been part of its modern day growth.
The Westminster area is surrounded by forests and wildlife that is certain to fascinate and attract both flora and fauna lovers, and outdoor sports enthusiasts of all types! Wachusett Mountain towers over the town of Westminster, providing a new vista for each season. Boaters and fishermen enjoy the shimmering lakes at its base in the summer and the leaf-peepers and hikers enjoy the brilliant colors of the hillsides in the fall. Over 300,000 skiers schussing down its slopes every winter make this mountain a great winter attraction to the area.
Westminster, situated on Route 2A near the beginning of the Mohawk Trail, is in the midst of Johnny Appleseed country. Visitors enjoy an atmosphere of rural tranquility, with views of beautiful lakes, and majestic mountain vistas..
