     AREA INFORMATION

In 1759 the General Assembly of North Carolina passed an act to establish three tobacco inspection warehouses in what was then Dobbs County. It was at the site of one of these warehouses, located along the banks of the Neuse River, that "Kingston" was originally established. The community was named for King George III of England. In 1784, following the end of the Revolutionary War, the people of Kingston requested that the letter "g" be dropped.

Kinston has served as the county seat for Lenoir County since 1791. Its location in the geographic center of eastern North Carolina makes it an ideal center for business, industry and agriculture.
