Kingsland is a city in Camden County, Georgia, United States. The population was 15,946 at the 2010 census.The Kingsland Commercial Historic District was added to the National Register of Historic Places March 17, 1994. It includes the area surrounding South Lee Street between King Street and William Street.Kingsland hosts an annual Catfish Festival on Labor Day weekend each year.HistoryIn 1788, the King family bought large amounts of land west of St. Marys. The Kings named the plantation Woodlawn. The great-grandson of John King, William King, later built a home on "King's Land." On Christmas Day in 1893 the first passenger train (the Florida Central and Peninsular Railroad, today's CSX Railroad) rolled into Camden County right across King’s property. As Mr. William King's house was the only one in sight, the railroad company named the area “Kings Land.” With the coming of the railroad, people from all areas began to build in and around Kings Land setting a new era in motion. After the railroad was developed, William Henry King mapped out the town to be located on his property and named it in his honor. Stores and businesses were open and he became the first mayor when the City of Kingsland was incorporated in 1908. Presumably, this was when the town’s two-word title became only one word. The first Kingsland newspaper was published on April 5, 1895 by the Southeast Georgian.In 1928, the nation's first Maine to Miami road, known in Georgia as the Dixie Highway, was being planned, although it wouldn’t open and pass through Kingsland until 1927. Until that time most people used the St Marys River ferry to cross back and forth between St Marys and Kingsland. Before the wide spread use of automobiles, water traffic was an essential means of transportation for the residents and businesses of Camden County.Take a look at our United States trip itinerary app to refine the details of your trip to Kingsland.
