Welcome to the Kingston Borough


The Municipality of Kingston is a beautiful, tree-lined, bedroom community located in the heart of northeastern Pennsylvania. Kingston was first settled in 1771 and officially incorporated as a borough in 1857.

Kingston is a Home Rule Municipality governed by an executive mayor and a seven-member legislative council. Council Members are elected to four-year terms, which are staggered. The Mayors term is also four years. A full-time administrator is responsible for the daily management of the community.

Kingston is a model residential community and an excellent place to raise a family. The community prides itself on service and staffs full-time professionals to serve its residents and businesses. Our professional fire and ambulance service has a response time of only three minutes to any home or business in Kingston. Our full-time Police Department, one of Luzerne County’s best, provides around-the-clock protection and service. Our Public Works Department ensures that our streets are plowed, our public facilities maintained, and that the Municipality looks great year-round.

Kingston offers a wide variety of indoor activities at the Kingston Recreation Center, which include: basketball and racquetball courts, state of the art strength and cardiovascular fitness equipment, computer amusements, pool tables, etc.

Outdoor recreation includes seven outdoor parks and playgrounds, three tot lots, a lighted softball field, six tennis courts, and an Olympic-plus size pool.

Kingston, centrally located in the Wyoming Valley West School District, is home to the Hoyt Library, Good Shepherd Academy, Wyoming Seminary and 14 houses of worship.

We’re sure you’ll agree Kingston’s services and amenities make it one of northeastern Pennsylvania’s premier communities. Please visit: luzernecounty.org
