You'll find no shortage of things to do in Kinston, NC during your stay at the Hampton Inn Kinston hotel. Downtown Kinston boasts a variety of historic buildings and a long history that dates back to 1759. Originally named “Kingston” for King George III, the people of our town requested the “g” be dropped - at the end of the Revolutionary War in 1784. You can see much of our town's history at various museums throughout the center. One favorite for visitors to our hotel in Kinston is the Caswell No. 1 Fire State Museum. It features a collection of helmets, nozzles and fire equipment spanning a 100-year period. The crown jewel of the collection, a 1922 American LaFrance Pumper, is the focus of the museum (LaFrances are often called the “Cadillacs of fire trucks” by those in the know). Lastly, if you love live performances, visit the Grainger-Hill Performing Arts Center, a historic stage near our hotel in Kinston.
