In 1788, the King family bought large amounts of land west of St. Marys. The Kings named the plantation Woodlawn. The great-grandson of John King, William King, later built a home on “King’s Land.” On Christmas day in 1893 the first passenger train (the Florida Central and Peninsular Railroad, today’s CSX Railroad) rolled into Camden County right across King’s property. As Mr. William King’s house was the only one in site, the railroad company named the area “Kings Land.” With the coming of the railroad, people from all areas began to build in and around Kings Land setting a new era in motion. After the railroad was developed, William Henry King mapped out the town to be located on his property and named it in his honor. Stores and businesses were open and he became the first mayor when the City of Kingsland was incorporated in 1908. Presumably, this was when the town’s two-word title became only one word. The first Kingsland newspaper was published on April 5, 1895 by the Southeast Georgian. Kingsland GA Homes for Sale
In 1928, the nation’s first Maine to Miami road, known in Georgia as the Dixie Highway, was being planned, although it wouldn’t open and pass through Kingsland until 1927. Until that time most people used the St Marys River ferry to cross back and forth between St Marys and Kingsland. Before the wide spread use of automobiles, water traffic was an essential means of transportation for the residents and businesses of Camden County. 
The City’s Police and Volunteer Fire Departments have been traced back to 1942 and 1943, respectively. The first fire truck in the 1940’s consisted of an army wagon with a pump on it that would be pulled by the first pickup truck to get there. In the 1950’s the first fire truck was built by putting the old tank and pump on a 1953 Chevrolet chassis. The first factory built truck was purchased in 1968. In 1973, the first ambulance license was issued to Kingsland Fire Rescue and they served the whole county. Kingsland GA Homes for Sale
