Hello to all Kingsley residents. If you are new to our city, welcome to Kingsley. We are glad you have chosen to live in our wonderful community and hope that you will stay with us for many years to come. Before explaining more about Kingsley, here are some important notes about current events:
Back to Kingsley:
Many years ago, our community was part of Farmington, the once sprawling farm of the Speed family. On March 1, 1924, developer C.C. Hieatt purchased 46 acres off Taylorsville Road and created the subdivision of Kingsley as an extension of the Strathmoor neighborhood. On December 21, 1939 Kingsley was incorporated as a sixth class city. Today, Kingsley has 175 single-family residences, 2 apartments, and 3 businesses.
We encourage you to take walks in our beautiful neighborhood. Many of our residents—especially when the weather is nice—enjoy the extensive sidewalk system that fronts all Kingsley properties. Stretch your legs, burn some calories, and meet the neighbors. Also, be sure to take advantage of Kingsley Green. It’s a great place to toss a football or to let the little ones expend some energy.
We hope you enjoy living in Kingsley. Please don’t hesitate to call the Mayor or one of your City Commissioners should you have any comments or concerns.
