Kings Town was incorporated in 1674, and included the vast area of Narragansett County. While it encompassed the present towns of North Kingstown and South Kingstown at that time, it was not until 1722-23, that they were established as separate towns. Best known as Rhode Island's sea town, North Kingstown's contributions are as historically significant as they are unique.
Today, North Kingstown is in the vanguard of a trend that is marking the future of Rhode Island's economic stability and industrial growth. From its earliest industries such as textiles, farming, fishing and boat building, to the designation in 1941 of Quonset Point and Davisville as major naval installations, North Kingstown has had a rich history of diversified economic growth and development.
North Kingstown is located in Washington County. Accommodations in North Kingstown include 1773 Narragansett House, Best Western Monte Vista Inn, Country House Bed And Breakfast and Cove Motel.
