Learn More About Kingsland, Georgia
Named “Lovetown USA” by Oprah Winfrey, Kingsland is a city in southwestern Camden County, Georgia which offers so much to delight in. The community of more than 16,000 people is located just off Interstate 95, which provides it access at four exits, and lies north of the Florida line. About 34 miles to the north of the city is Brunswick and 36 miles to the south is Jacksonville.
The founding of Kingsland is credited to the King family, which bought a wide expanse of land in the area west of St. Marys in 1788. It was initially known as Woodland, then a plantation. The first passenger train arrived in Camden County via the area on the Christmas Day of 1893. The Florida Central and Peninsular Railroad, precursor of CSX Railroad, decided to name it “Kings Land” because the only property there at the time was the home built by William King, great-grandson of John King. The railroad brought many people to the area. The city was incorporated in 1908 and its name is believed to have been combined into a single word around this period.
Kingsland was estimated to be home to 16,487 people in 2015, representing a rise of more than 50 percent above the level in 2000. This is a family-friendly community that appears to also be home to a high number of young individuals. More than 80 percent of the people living there as of 2000 census were not older than 44 years of age, with the median age calculated at just about 28 years.
