History

The Village of Kingston is situated in Nova Scotia's beautiful Annapolis Valley at the western end of King's County.

Our rich heritage dates back to the days of the Mi'kmaq. When settlers arrived from France they were befriended by the Mi'kmaq. The French brought apple farming to the Valley. Kingston became a commercial center for both the apple and lumbering industries. The Canadian Armed Forces Base Greenwood added a new dimension to the economic and cultural diversity of the area.

Kingston Historical Society

The history of Kingston and neighbouring communities has been written and compiled by the Kingston Historical Society and published in a two volume book entitled, Echoes Across the Valley, with the hope that our heritage will be passed on to future generations. Enjoy! The set is available for sale at the Kingston Village Office at 671 Main St. for $25.00.
