History:  

KINGSTON, settled in 1856 and organized April 5, 1858, took the name of its village, proposed by George A. Nourse, a lawyer of St. Anthony. Twenty-five other states, and also the Canadian provinces of Ontario and New Brunswick, have villages or cities and townships of this name. The city in section 22 was platted in 1871 and incorporated as a village on September 13, 1961; the post office began in 1857, changed to a rural branch, 1907-10, and reestablished as a community post office in 1954.
