Maryland Blogger: Kentlands Historic Building – Gaithersburg Arts Barn

Kentlands Historic Building – Gaithersburg Arts Barn

Kentlands Historic Building – Gaithersburg Arts Barn

 

The Gaithersburg Arts Barn is the location of many community activities. The building, at 311 Kent Square Road, is a two story, five bay brick building with a cedar shake roof.  The barn was constructed around 1900 by Frederick A. Tschiffely, Jr. and was used as a horse stable and a wood shop. 

This property is now owned by the City of Gaithersburg and is received a historic designation from the City in November, 2012.  The building now serves as an art gallery and artists’ studios.  The former hayloft was converted into a 99 seat theatre for the performing arts.

The Arts Barn is located behind the Kentlands Mansion which is also owned by the City of Gaithersburg.

Walks through our home community become more interesting when a camera in hand makes them photowalks.   

Kentlands is a neo-traditional community in the Maryland suburbs of Washington, DC.  The Kentlands community is a favorite for families that are relocated to the region.  The Montgomery County schools have an outstanding reputation and it is very nice to live within walking distance of shopping and restaurants.

Good morning, Roy. That just may be the "fancist" looking "barn" I've ever seen!

Roy, have to agree with Nina, that is quite the fancy barn, and cute art on the lawn.

Meet Zayd Salahuddin Zayd
Zayd Salahuddin, a fourth grade student at DuFief Elementary School, was recently named Gaithersburg Junior Mayor. He was selected out of a field of 103 essayists and six video interview finalists. Zayd's first official appearance will be at the State of the City event on April 26. He will then accompany the Mayor and City Council to numerous events throughout the year. In his essay, Zayd was asked to explore concepts of leadership. "An important initiative that I would want to lead would be making our city a leading user of green energy," he wrote. "This project (a green energy festival) is important to me because I want other cities to see how clean and pretty Gaithersburg is, and model their own cities after ours." Read his winning essay here.
