Oconee CountyWestminster

Established in the 1890's, the City of Westminster is located in the foothills of the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains in western Oconee County. The town was born from a water stop for the railroad. Today, Westminster boasts more than one hundred homes unique to the late 1800's and turn-of-the-century. Old Main Street, with its unique shops and hometown atmosphere, has benefited from an influx of private investment that restored most of its buildings, which have drawn shoppers and tourists.
