The buildings that make up Kenwood Forest originally were built by the Federal Government as rental housing for soldiers and their families returning to the area after World War II.  Each building was divided into four 2 bedroom apartments, two on the first floor and two on the second.  Some buildings had basements for additional storage; others did not.  Over time, the soldiers and their families moved away, but the 650+ apartment complex continued to be home to many in the Washington area.

By the mid to late 1970's, the Holladay Corporation bought the property and began to convert the apartment buildings to town homes.  Some of the four unit apartments became three town homes; others were converted to two larger town homes.  Windows were changed to doors; doors were changed to windows.  Roof lines and facades were varied for architectural interest.  The conversion was carried out in three phases.  The apartments on Fairfax Road were converted first, then Hillandale and lastly Offutt Lane and Chevy Chase Drive.  The entire project took place over several years from the late '70's to early '80's.  When it was completed, a new and very special part of Chevy Chase was born!
