Wondering how to edit this U.S. County Entry?
The WikiProject U.S. Counties standards might help.

Is there any town of Kingston, Rhode Island? The R.I. state website suggests there isn't one; see e.g. the menu at [1]. If this is a fake town, perhaps we should remove this link from this page.

Yes there is a Kingston, RI[edit]

It's a village within the town of South Kingstown. There is an Amtrak station and a campus of the University of Rhode Island there.

If it's a village within the town of South Kingstown, then the answer is no: there isn't any town of Kingston, Rhode Island, which is what I asked. AJD 21:23, 11 Apr 2005 (UTC)

History[edit]

It's unclear from the history who originally settled this county, and which colony they were allied with or administered by. -- Beland (talk) 16:32, 6 July 2009 (UTC)

Map[edit]

Repost from South Kingstown, Rhode Island looking for a broader audience:

Isn't there a small issue with the map? Isn't Jerusalem actually in Narragansett, so the town line shouldn't be drawn at the channel? http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/7/75/Map_of_Washington_County_Rhode_Island_With_Municipal_Labels.PNG agrees with this.
