Westminster is the seat of Carroll County with a population of more than 18,000 people. This community has rich history and is less than 40 miles from Baltimore, Maryland. The Civil War raged here and Gettysburg is not far away. The city was also filmed in the classic movie, For Richer or Poorer. This explains why the motto is “Where History Meets Tomorrow” and the charming small town vibe with a tight knit community.
