Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has. Margaret Mead

Kent County is rich in both Native American and Colonial history. The story of the Chesapeake area is told by its land and how that land was used. In fact, Kent County is home to one of the last great colonial landscapes still in a substantially preserved state.
Kent Conservation and Preservation Alliance (KCPA) believes strongly that we must conserve and nurture this important cultural and historic landscape. To that end, we are dedicated to educating our fellow citizens about what its loss would mean and preserving the character and traditions of the area as we accommodate modern life.
We have been given a gift: a countryside with abundant open farmland, wonderful small historic towns, villages and hamlets protected by past generations. KCPA will always be an advocate to insure that the land remains unharmed and intact. We believe that we are temporary stewards of this land, caretakers for our grandchildren, and that the stories of the region’s history, natural environment, communities and people are a part of the lore and life of those whose roots are here and are to be enjoyed by everyone living and visiting here today.
