Kingston Village Advisory Committee

The Kingston Village Advisory Committee, jointly appointed by the South Brunswick Township and Franklin Township Councils, reports to both Township Councils on matters of concern to the historic "village" of Kingston and its citizens. The Committee holds an annual Village Meeting and advises the two Councils on citizen issues in this unique split jurisdiction.

Kingston is (so far) unique as the only Village Center that has been officially designated by the New Jersey State Planning Commission. Kingston's location on the Lenape Assunpink Trail where it crossed the Millstone River, and later becoming part of the King's Highway was the prime factor in its early prominence. Kingston was by far the most active and important village, being situated on both the heavily traveled King's Road and Millstone River, combining commercial activities of both mills and taverns.
