You are here



Kinston, North Carolina was established in 1762. Originally Kingston, it was named in honor of King George III, who had recently ascended to the throne. In 1784, following the end of the Revolutionary War, the residents of Kingston requested that the letter "g" be dropped from the towns name, creating Kinston. Still distasteful of royalty, Kinston briefly changed its name to Caswell in 1883; the name reverted to Kinston one year later.

Kinston, population 23,688, is centrally located in eastern NC in NC’s Inner Banks region in Lenoir County. This central location has fueled development in the form of the NC Global TransPark, a combined airport and industrial complex spanning over 15,000 acres. The North Carolina Global TransPark (GTP) was developed by NC to attract industry and bring increased economic opportunities to the region by transitioning the area from an agricultural base to an industrial base.

Kinston, NC is also home of the Kinston Indians , a professional baseball team that plays at the historic Grainger Stadium. For drag racing fans, The Kinston Drag Strip offers year-round entertainment.
