Welcome to our new Pride of Kinston website!

Pride of Kinston is a non-profit organization dedicated to the growth and revitalization of downtown. The Pride of Kinston website receives many visitors from across the country. People are seeking a great place to retire, raise a family, buy a home or building, open a business, be an artist, or to invest. We want our website to illustrate the great energy, good vibes, and progressive thinking of today’s Kinston.

Our goal for the website is for it to reflect our spirit – to be engaging, interactive, user-friendly, and a go-to site for all things Kinston. Our website hosts businesses, organizations, and event postings along with their links at no charge for those located within the designated boundaries of our downtown district. However, if your business organization is located outside of our district boundaries, you can be included for a very nominal annual fee.

Pride of Kinston, Inc. is committed to spearheading, growing, and maintaining a healthy, vibrant downtown to improve the quality of life for Kinston and Lenior County residents. The mission of Pride of Kinston, Inc., is to lead downtown revitalization in using the Main Street approach that promotes economic development within the context of historic preservation.
