The Place

Westminster is one of several small, vibrant towns inside Oconee County, recently named one of National Geographic's "50 of the World's Last Great Places." Originally a railroad town in Cherokee Native American country, Westminster and the surrounding area provide ample outdoor and cultural opportunities, including three large lakes and miles of hiking, biking and hunting real estate.
