Kemp Mill is a suburb of Washington DC.
Arcola Avenue is a street that runs through Kemp Mill. Arcola was built on the ridge line that separates the Sligo Creek watershed from the Northwest Branch watershed.
Traveling on Arcola Avenue brings you to Kemp Mill Road. If you follow Kemp Mill Road to its end, you will find the waters of the Northwest Branch coursing over the remnants of the eponymous George Kemp’s Mill.
Kemp Mill was mostly forest when Jack Kay carved a residential neighborhood out of the woods here. The neighborhood still has the feel of a forest. There are many trees, and wildlife such as deer and rabbits. Kemp Mill is surrounded by undeveloped forest areas.
