Archetypal Towns and Villages of Country and City

Maryland 20878 began as  Kentlands Dot Us in 2004. We were a publication of the Kentlands community.  As a result of our growing popularity, we soon expanded to cover the Lakelands community as well at KentLakes, and then once again expanded to Maryland 20878 covering Gaithersburg and beyond. We previously posted this site as a monthly news publication, but we found that our readership likes the more permanent informational material that we offer. We continue to post articles by our international award-winning writers and have past articles available.

These architects recreate Currier and Ives villages.
