The Flanders Historic District is a historic districtthat encompassses a small cluster of late-18th to early-19th century residential structures north of the center of Kent, Connecticut, which was the original heart of the community when it was first settled. There are twelve major buildings, of which five are large Federal style houses, three are older colonial-era buildings, and two later vernacular Greek Revival structures. The oldest house, that of John Beebe, Sr., was built in 1741.[2]

The district was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1979.[1]
