Somerset Housing & Amenities

Housing options in Somerset are exclusively single-family. So fiercely do residents look to maintain this aesthetic that in the 1980's, when a large-scale condominium complex began construction after having been challenged and blocked for twenty years, the town voted to unincorporate that particular patch of land. Of the town's single-family dwellings, the most popular styles include brick and frame Colonial Revivals, Cape Cods, Foursquares, and Tudor Revivals. All of these houses are well shaded and privacy is standard, thanks to the beautiful mature trees that line the streets.

The small town of Somerset is fortunate in its two parks: Capello and Vinton Park. Just over the western boundary stands a Whole Foods Market.

Somerset History

Named for the county of Somerset in England, the town was founded by five government scientists in 1890. Originally part of the Friendship Tract that is now the site of Friendship Heights and Friendship Village, Somerset was, until its purchase, 50 acres of prime tobacco farmland. Five main streets were laid out and named likewise for English counties: Dorset, Warwick, Surrey, Cumberland, and Essex. By the early days of the 20th century, residents moved that Somerset become a town in order to pay for the public projects that were becoming necessities that they could not fully carry out. In 1906, Somerset was incorporated and its first resident, Dr. Charles A. Crampton was elected as the first mayor.
