The Village of Kingston was settled in the year
1793 by the United Empire Loyalists, and from
this settlement sprang one of the most
flourishing industries in the Province, the
apple industry. Kingston is located in the heart
of the beautiful Annapolis Valley and is
surrounded by rich farmland and fruit orchards.
Just a short drive away is the incredible Bay of
Fundy boasting the highest tides in the world.
Kingston was incorporated as a Village in 1957.
Although Kingston began as a settlement
nearly 200 years ago but did not become an
industrial centre until the early 1900's,
with the establishment of its lumber and
apple processing industries. Today, the
Village economy is largely influenced by Canadian Forces Base
Greenwood; a consistent generator of employment,
service demand and housing activity.
