A Little Piece of History
Kent, Connecticut was sectioned in 1737 and settled in about 1739. The town is located in the northwest corner of Litchfield County and currently boasts a population of less than 3,000 with several small hamlets including Bulls Bridge, Kent Hollow, South Kent and The Cobble.
As you'll see, Kent is a thriving, lovely town full of caring residents and thoughtful business owners. It’s full of shops, art galleries and restaurants nestled between expansive natural beauty and the picturesque private schools located within the area.
Even though the town began as a small industry and farming community, it has now been named one of the most beautiful towns in New England. Bisected by the Housatonic River, there’s endless sights to see, not just downtown but at landmarks such as Macedonia Brook State Park, the Appalachian Trail, Kent Falls State Park and Bulls Bridge to name a few.
The Town of Kent operates under a town meeting form of government, with a board of selectmen, currently led by Bruce Adams. Come see for yourself, Kent has a lot to offer and we’re thankful they’ve opened their doors to us all!
