Founded in the 1890s by developer Brainard Warner, the Victorian styles and attractive layout (predominently in the "Town of Knesington) was inspired after Warner took a trip to London. Thanks to the wide selection of homes available in Kensington coupled with the beautiful park-like setting, the neighborhood quickly became a popular summer home destination for D.C. residents. Today, the community stands on its own as a beautiful upscale community that is perfect for year-round living.

Kensington is an incorporated town with a Mayor and has kept a true sense of identity. The annual events, like the Labor Day Parade, help to create a community feel that is appreciated by those fortunate enough to live in this town.
