This municipality is made up of several contiguous fishing communities on the North Shore of Conception Bay, between Kingston (formerly Upper Small Point) and Western Bay. On this 5 km stretch of coast, settlers built their homes and gardens on the banks above the sea, and the various communities soon ``ran together''.

Kingston was first known as Upper Small Point. It was renamed Kingston in the early 1900s in honour of one of its earliest families.

The nearby abandoned community of Spout Cove has unusual and interesting landscapes for the photographer.
