Kingsland Texas History:
Kingsland is located on land purchased in 1877 by Martin D. King. It was initially called Kingsville. By 1901, it was known as Kingsland. In the 1880s, the community was a small trading center with a cotton gin. Activity increased with the extension of the Austin and Northwestern Railroad to Llano through Kingsville in 1892. The Antlers Hotel was built by the railroad in 1901. In 1925, the town had 150 residents. The creation of the nearby Highland Lakes caused the town to grow.
