WE are more than just the Town!

Only eight miles from the Nation’s Capitol is a place that’s a world apart: 20895 Kensington. Stroll its tree-lined streets. Explore famous Antique Row. Take in a show when one of several performing arts groups is on stage at the Kensington Town Hall, stop and visit with some of the friendliest people you’ve ever had the pleasure to meet, and imagine a time when Kensington was the place where well-to-do Washingtonians escaped the city summer for the cool countryside and the Nation's Capitol first civil servants made their homes to have an easy daily commute into the city. What else will you find here? A small town atmosphere, with everything from Main Street stores to cool, green parks, a rich history that dates back to the 17th century. Kensington offers a rare combination of big city convenience and culture and community charm along with shopping you won’t find anywhere else.
