Along the quaint tree-lined streets of Kingston, there’s a sense of history at each corner…

Pennsylvania’s first public school was established in the Luzerne County borough in the late 1700’s.

 

In 1844, Wyoming Seminary was founded as a college-prep school continuing to nurture local and international students.

 

State-of-the-art technology links the philanthropy of the past at The Hoyt Public Library.

Experience cultural events at the Kirby Center for Creative Arts; or stroll the Levee Trail near the

Susquehanna and follow the course of the river.

 

Tradition is woven with promise and pride making Kingston a unique community in Luzerne County and “a great place to call home.”

 

"Our Town: Kingston," is produced in partnership with the Times Leader and Lamar Advertising.

 

As northeastern Pennsylvania’s and the Central Susquehanna Valley’s member supported public television station serving a very large geographic area, the "Our Town" project was initiated in an effort to involve the communities and their residents with WVIA Public Media. The "Our Town" television series is intended to treat viewers to the many personalities, perspectives, and possibilities that local towns have to offer.

 

An encore presentation of “Our Town: Kingston” will be broadcast on Sunday June 26, 2016 at 12 p.m. on WVIA TV.
