 About the Book

On Christmas Day in 1893, the first passenger train of the Florida Central & Peninsular Railroad passed through Kings property, which the railroad company called Kings Land. As the railroad began to push its way southward through the plantation, King envisioned a town and set out to divide his land into a well-planned city. The center of it was the crossing of King Street and the railroad, with the city limits extending in a half-mile circle. As the railroad advanced, people began to build in and around Kings Land, setting a new era in motion. Located at the center of Camden County between the cities of St. Marys and Woodbine, Kingsland has become a lovely town proud of its small-town atmosphere and city amenities. This book presents Kingslands evolution from its founding in 1908 through the celebration of its centennial and nomination to Lovetown USA in 2012.
