Kensington, a small rural community of approximately 1800 people, is situated in southeastern Rockingham County, about 8 miles from the Atlantic Ocean.
Kensington remains a community of farms, woodlands & pastures, and wetlands; and the roads have names like Stumpfield, Wild Pasture, Drinkwater, Hemlock, Juniper, and Muddy Pond. Kensington is a community where old fashioned values still prevail.
Approximately 12 square miles in size, Kensington has four state owned roads running through it: Routes 84, 107, 108, and 150.
The downtown, though small, serves the needs of the community well: a Town Hall, an elementary school (grades K-5), a library, two churches, Fire Department, Police Department, and a cemetery. Two restaurants, a convenience store, James R. Rosencrantz and C.P Lumber form the commercial base of Kensington, with Exeter & Hampton Electric the primary industry in the town.
Welcome to Kensington, we hope you'll come back soon. Thank you, and Enjoy.
