Kingsville is a city in the South Barrier Coast region of Texas. Originally meant to be a supply/commerce center for the King Ranch when it was created as a planned city in 1904, Kingsville has evolved to incorporate a naval air station and a Texas A&M campus (TAMUK) as well. However, its identity will always probably be inseparable from the ranch.

Get around[edit]


  • King Ranch Museum, 405 N 6th St. Here you can learn all about this rather insanely-sized beef and game ranch that dominates life around Kingsville and was its reason for being. Tel: +1 361-595-1881. Tu-F 10AM-4PM.
  • John E Conner Museum, 905 W Santa Gertrudis St (on Texas A&M-Kingsville campus). A natural history museum, and if you are into hundreds of mounted animals and deer heads staring at you, you're in luck. Tel: +1 361-593-2810. F-Sa 10AM-4PM.
  • 1 The 1904 Train Depot Museum, 102 E Kleberg Ave, +1 800-333-5032. M-F 10AM-4PM, Sa 11AM-2PM. One of the King/Kleberg family dynasty's pet projects was getting a railroad to pass through their town, Kingsville, which they did, right at about the same time it was platted. This is also the location of the Kingsville Visitor Center.
