Kentlands Historic Building - Flour Mill 

320 Firehouse Lane, Kentlands, Gaithersburg, MD


This one story colonial revival style building was built around 1920.  The original use as for a flour mill.  The property currently serves as the local office of Duany Plater-Syberk & Company, architects and urban planners. The Gaithersburg City Council approved a historic designation for the property in December, 2012.

The location is next to the Gaithersburg Arts Barn and across the street from the old Kentlands Firehouse which has now been converted to a single family home.

Kentlands is a neo-traditional community in Gaithersburg, Maryland, in the suburbs of Washington, DC.  Kentlands is one of the preferred areas for families that are relocated to the DC Metro Area.

I would never guess that building was an old flour mill. It doesn't look industrial at all.

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.
