Visitors can explore a circa 1894 town and its past by basking in the charm of the red-brick paved sidewalks while enjoying the many unique dining and boutique shopping opportunities in the town proper. With the renovation of the historic Train Depot and construction of Kingsland Veterans Memorial Park, the little city is right on track for the future!

Downtown Facade Grant Program
