Berkshire Style - In and Around The Berkshires, An Online Resource

Kent

Kent

"Located in the scenic northwest corner of Litchfield County and incorporated in 1739,. The downtown area is a mix of residential homes, shops, art galleries, and restaurants. The town also offers old-fashioned ways to enjoy life such as hiking, biking, camping and fishing at State and local parks. Kent is also the perfect destination for those inclined to take a scenic drive, especially in the fall! Those of us who live in Kent often comment how lucky we are to have such a great place to call home." - www.townofkentct.org
