Facade Grant Application Downtown Diorama Downtown Walking Map Local Event Information The Royal District Historic Downtown Kingsland, Georgia Surrounded by deep pine forest, lazy rivers, and edged by  the Atlantic Ocean, Kingsland, listed on the National  Register of Historic Places, was founded on lands once  owned by King George II of England.  In 1788, another  gentleman, coincidentally named John King, purchased a  large section of land west of St. Marys., making him the  largest land owner in the area.  The City of Kingsland itself  dates back to 1894 when the Florida Central and  Peninsular Railroad (today’s CSX Railroad) built its lines  on the route through lands that were on King family  property.  The Kings home was the only one on the site of  the railroad, so the FC&P Railroad dubbed the area “Kings  Land,” thus setting a new era in to motion. With the  coming of the railroad, building began in earnest around  King’s Land, and John King’s great-grandson, William  Henry King, mapped out the town that would primarily be  located on his property and named in his honor.  He  became Kingsland’s first mayor when it was incorporated  in 1908.  While most of Kingsland’s recent growth and  development is focused just off of interstate 95 at Exit 3,  only a few moments away you are transported back in time  as Kingsland’s historic downtown is rich in both history  and beauty.  Located 2 miles from the bustling interstate is  the Historic Royal District of downtown Kingsland,  anchored by the old “Dixie Highway” of U.S. 17.  Visitors  can explore a circa 1894 town and its past by basking in  the charm of the red-brick paved side walks while enjoying  the many unique dining and boutique shopping  opportunities in the town proper.  With the renovation of  the historic Train Depot, constructing of Kingsland  Veterans Memorial Park, and implementation of the  cultural mural series, the little city is right on track for the  future.
