Let's Celebrate!

 KINGSTON – One of the oldest communities in the state, Kingston observes its 325th anniversary as a  town in 2019, and work has already begun in planning a year’s worth of commemorative events for all to enjoy.  

Established in 1694, Kingston was the sixth New Hampshire town, its Royal Charter granted by King William of England. A committee was created by selectmen to oversee the celebration of its long and distinguished history.
