Town of Kent, New York
The Town of Kent is in the north central section of Putnam County. The population of Kent as of the 2000 Census was approximately 14,000. The town received its name from an early settler. It was originally part of the Philipse Patent and in the 1600’s was populated by the Wappinger Tribe. Kent was first settled by Europeans in the mid 1700’s. It was part of Dutchess County until 1812, and was named Kent in 1817.
The early economy of the town was dairy farming for markets in New York City. By the 1920’s that connection was over. Kent is 43.2 square miles and borders Dutchess county in the north. Reservoirs in Kent supply water to Westchester County and New York City.
The Town Court is located at 25 Sybil’s Crossing in Kent Lakes, and the town judges are J. Peter Collins and Kevin Douchkoff. The court handles criminal, traffic and small claims matters.
