Kentfield and Kent Woodlands are named after the Kent family who used to own a tremendous portion of central Marin, including Muir Woods and Stinson Beach. It has never been incorporated, thus no mayor, no police department. But the Kentfield schools, which serve both Kentfield and Greenbrae, are excellent, It also is home to the College of Marin.
It is definitely a sleepy town. "Downtown" consists of a few cafes and restaurants, a couple of boutiques, a bike shop, and one Coldwell Banker real estate office. Kent Woodlands predominately features large houses on one acre lots at the base of Mount Tamalpais. Kentfield has a few neighborhoods which vary from older modest houses on the edge of the town of Ross, to larger houses in the Del Mesa area off of Laurel Grove Ave. Beautiful summer weather, but be prepared for winter rains. Kentfield has the highest rainfall in Marin.
