Moving to Kentlands, MD?

If you are new to the area, or are considering a move, you might already have an idea of how unique and innovative Kentlands is. Development of the Kentlands community began in 1988 as a part of what would become the New Urbanism movement. Kentlands has been designed to be a thriving mixed-use city neighborhood where residencies, parks, businesses, shopping, and amenities are all within walking distance. The integrative spirit of Kentlands is also at the core of the Barnesville philosophy of learning and development.
