Discover Kensington
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.

The Society maintains a library of publications, newspaper clippings and photographs at their Archives in the Town Hall. The Archives are open Friday mornings 9:30 to 12 and by appointment. KHS also presents educational programs, community concerts, hosts semi-annual social events, and publishes a quarterly newsletter and yearly calendar honoring some feature of historic Kensington
