Kinston is among the oldest cities in North Carolina and is proud of its heritage, which is readily apparent at the area’s many Civil War attractions. Kinston, the county seat, offers higher education at Lenoir Community College. The county’s Global TransPark is poised to take a leading role in the aerospace industry, with Spirit AeroSystems opening a plant there in the coming year. The Neuse River winds its way through Kinston, providing boaters with a relaxing place to paddle, and baseball fans are always ready to watch the Kinston Indians round the bases.
