Small-Town Living, Big Time Fun

There’s something about living in a small town that just makes life a little more enchanting, and Kingston is no exception. It’s a place where the tea is always sweet and Friday-night football reigns. It’s a community of neighbors who’ve got your back when you need them, full of hardworking people who know how to take it easy.

But Kingston has more to offer than Southern charm. It’s also a burgeoning lakeside retreat with a thriving tourism industry, offering everything from guided fishing tours to a breezy day on the golf course to casino thrills. Yeah, this small town has big dreams.

If, for whatever reason, you can’t find the adventure you’re seeking in your own backyard, Durant lies just over 20 minutes away. And when you need to stock up for the week, the local Wal-Mart can be found in Madill, a short 11-minute drive north.

At the end of the day, Kingston is a community that stands on its own. And whether you’re reeling in the big one on the lake or watching the kids chase fireflies in the yard at dusk, it’s a town full of exciting opportunities where your family will have plenty of room to grow.

A BRIEF HISTORY

On April 4, 1894, a small post office named after local resident Jeff King was erected in what was then known as Pickens County in the Chickasaw Nation Indian Territory. When a railway station was established about two miles northeast in 1900, the settlement was briefly known as Helen, after James Willis’ daughter. Due to the ensuing confusion from differences in names between the station and post office, it was officially named Kingston when Oklahoma gained statehood in 1907.

Kingston lies in what is now Marshall County and has a total area of 1.8 square miles. Most of its economic success can be attributed to the tourism interest in nearby Lake Texoma.

EDUCATION

Kingston Public Schools is a small district that includes an elementary, middle, and high school that serve about 1,200 total students.
