Kingston documents the rich and varied cultural, social, and commercial histories of the town and its inhabitants through the sharing of a remarkable legacy of historical and topographical photographic images. Within these pages, you will see how early Kingston prospered because of the productive lands of the Jones River and its tributaries, how iron ore was mined in the town's bogs, and how some three hundred vessels were built in the Jones River yards in the nineteenth century. In Kingston, you also will learn of the Old Colony Railroad, which came to town in 1845, and of the railroad's first two presidents, local residents Col. John Sever and Alexander Holmes.
