Kingsland is an unincorporated community located within Lyndhurst Township in Bergen County, New Jersey, United States.[2]


The Kingsland family possessed a large tract of land in the area known as Kingsland Manor. In 1872, the Delaware, Lackawanna and Western Railroad established a railway through the township, and erected a depot in the settlement named "Kingsland" in honor of the family. A railroad shop was built, and houses erected for the railroad employees. Church services were held in the train depot.[3]

Kingsland had a post office.[4]
