Westminster was founded in 1876 as a railroad stop and continues to claim the old train Depot as one of the community’s points of interest.  Westminster boasts more than one hundred homes that are unique to the late 1800’s and turn-of-the-century. 

The General Store Museum houses the contents of England’s General Merchandise Store that was originally purchased by the Westminster Area Historical Preservation Society and then donated to OHC.

The Westminster Music Hall is a premier venue for live music.  Located on Main Street, this renovated historic building seats 150 patrons and offers light snacks and beverages during performances.  

Westminster hosts the annual South Carolina Apple Festival that is held on Main Street the week after Labor Day.  The Apple Festival celebrates the beginning of the Apple harvest season in Oconee County—the largest apple producing area in South Carolina!
