Kensington, Maryland
Kensington is a bedroom community to Washington, DC. It is a Marc train station and easy access to DC via Connecticut Ave. There are several different styles and sizes of homes in all price ranges.
The area around the Rock Creek basin where Kensington is located was primarily agricultural until 1873, when the B&O Railroad completed the Metropolitan Branch which traversed Montgomery County. A community arose where the new railroad line intersected the old Rockville-to-Bladensburg road. This early settlement was first known as Knowles Station. In the early 1890s, Washington, D.C. developer Brainard Warner began purchasing land parcels to build a planned Victorian community, complete with church, library and a local newspaper. Fascinated by a recent trip to London, Warner named his subdivision Kensington Park, the 10th and largest subdivision in the area which became the Town of Kensington. Upon incorporation in 1894, Warner convinced the Mayor and Council to name the town Kensington.  The historic core of Kensington was listed on the National Register of Historic Places, as the Kensington Historic District in 1980.
