This is where the City of Westminster had its simple beginnings.  With the early indigenous Arapahoe Indians led by Chief Little Raven, to Frontiersman Jim Baker, trapper and guide, to Pleasant DeSpain who homesteaded with his family and established DeSpain Junction. Edward Bowles who built and raised his family in the brick home on 72nd Ave. and helped bring the railroad to town by funding the Westminster Depot.  C.J. Harris, the developer who built his family mansion “Harris House” at the top of Bradburn Blvd. and renamed the area Harris Park or the Town of Harris, to the “Vote for Incorporation” of the Town of Westminster in 1911. This area of the city has the richest history that is revealed in every block and business.
