Kensington Park was developed from land  originally belonging to the antebellum Kensington Plantation, which later became known as Kensington Farm, a late 19th/early 20th  century farm operation .  In 1950 the tracts  were purchased by developers John C. Wylly and Emanuel Javetz who immediately  made plans to develop a residential subdivision called Kensington Park.  Today, Kensington Park remains a well-planned mid-century community with large lots and beautiful mature growth shade trees.
