Westminster Castle, Westminster, Colorado


Westminster Castle (aka “The Pillar of Fire”), Colorado is a late 19th century, red sandstone building constructed to house a Presbyterian University (Westminster University).  With a 175ft tower at its main entrance, the Romanesque style property resembles a unique chateau.


Completed in 1893 but not opened until 1908, Westminster Castle is on the National Register of Historic Places and is part of the Belleview Christian School campus. Whilst not one of the main teaching buildings, the castle is still used by the school and features on the school's website.
