The township of Kingston, now known as Conway, was open for settlement in 1735. In the original plan of the town, the area now occupied by Kingston Church's graveyard was laid out as part of the town commons. On May 30th, 1858, the first religious service was held in the sanctuary and the present Kingston Presbyterian Church was officially organized.
Construction was done under the direction of Otis Eaton, a master builder, who came from Maine to build ships in Bucksville, SC.
