Historical Kingstown Fifth Town In NH

Kingston was the fifth town to be established in New Hampshire. In 1694, King William of England granted a royal charter establishing the town of "Kingstown", so named in honor of the King. Use of the title rather than the King's name was common at the time.

The Kingston historic district encompasses the town center of Kingston. Historic buildings within the district include the Kingston town hall and the Josiah Bartlett House, home of the second signer of the U.S. Declaration of Independence. Historical industries included charcoal manufacturing in which became a major business in West Kingston. Also many individuals manufactured shoes in their small, one-room shoe shops. These individuals constructed the whole shoe, hand-sewing it with an artisan's touch.

Kingston's students attend Seacoast Charter School, D.J. Bakie Elementary School or the Sanborn Regional Middle and High Schools.
