The House History Collection MC45 contains information on some of the the older houses in Kingston.

The Collection is based on the 1998-1999 Kingston Historical Commission survey forms, which may include information on owners, occupants and builders, as well as architectural style and details. Many forms are also available from the Massachusetts Historical Commission’s MACRIS database.


Interested in researching your home’s history?

We recommend that you call, email, or stop by the LHR to see what additional information we might have on your house. You might then research deeds for your house and property at the Plymouth Registry of Deeds. Once you have identified past owners and significant dates,  bring that information back to the Local History Room for another look at the collections.
