Welcome to the Kingston Depot Committee Home Page

 

 

                                                  

The Kingston Depot Committee is involved in rebuilding the old depot in Kingston, Michigan with the goal of making it a Community building with historical ties. This work is being done under the auspices of the Village of Kingston.  We have several publications of historical significance for genealogists. All proceeds go toward the rebuilding of the Kingston Depot. Please see Committee holdings below. If you would like to help us with this project, please e-mail Richard and Jan Peter.

We will soon be putting online our Quasqui-Centennial publication, "Kingston, MI, 1857 - 1982."
