Welcome to Historic
Founded in 1904, Kingsville’s development as a thriving community was thanks in large part to massive efforts made by Robert J. Kleberg and Henrietta King of the world-famous King Ranch. Seeking to foster community and economic development in the untamed “Wild Horse Desert”, Mrs. King donated acres of land which became the site of a railroad hub and later, the site of present-day Kingsville. The ranch’s support and influence have left an indelible mark on the city’s growth and culture that continues to this day.
