Now it is the social and economic center of the north end of the Kitsap Peninsula.King's TownIn 1869, W.S. Ladd and his wife, Caroline built a cabin on Appletree Cove. Michael King then bought the cabin 9 years later. He moved in along with 10 oxen and 10 men. They slowly logged the hills around Appletree Cove. Mr. King built many small buildings and shacks along the shore for his men and animals. In 1882, he was done and moved on. The shacks and bunkhouses were left behind and lived in by drifters, squatters and old loggers. People living in the area often referred to this as King's Town, probably as a joke. The name slowly evolved into Kingston and stuck.
