In 1768, parts of the Wyoming Valley were divided amongst 200 men into five townships, measuring five square miles each. The first 40 men who arrived settled in Kingston township, which then included Kingston Township, Dallas Township, and part of both Franklin and Lake Townships.
The area broke into Luzerne County in the 1780s and Kingston—named after Kingston, Rhode Island—was divided into four separate wards in 1891. The first rail road began operating a few decades earlier in 1856. The line ran through 1949 when the last passenger station arrived in Kingston on November 15.
