Town Description:

Kent is primarily residential with some small industry and farms. The downtown area has become a day trip destination for many. While there are many small hamlets, such as South Kent and Bulls Bridge, the obelisk Civil War Soldiers Monument at the intersection is a dramatic assurance that you have arrived in downtown Kent. The monument is in the center of town at the intersection of State Route 7, a major north-south road and Route 341, an east-west road. The downtown area is a mix of residential homes, shops, art galleries and restaurants. Most of the businesses are owner operated, so take the time to stop and talk to the owners about town.

Education is important to Kent. As well as the public elementary school, which was recently renovated, it is home to three private preparatory schools, Kent School, South Kent School and Marvelwood School. Art is well represented in the many galleries downtown.

The town also offers old-fashioned ways to enjoy life such as hiking, biking, camping and fishing at State Parks and local parks. For those inclined, it even offers scenic drives. Those of us who live in Kent often comment how lucky we are to have such a great place to call home. Please enjoy our website to learn more about Kent.
