The village of Kingston, Michigan is in the Thumb Region of the Lower Peninsula, straddling Kingston and Koylton townships in Tuscola County.

M-46 (Sanilac Road) runs east-west through the village, intersecting Kingston Road (Washington Street, Ross Street) in the center of town. Cities and villages within twenty miles of Kingston include Clifford, Marlette, Mayville, Cass City, North Branch, Caro, and Sandusky.

The population of the small village peaked at 464 in 1970, although it has ranged between the low 300s and the mid-400s since 1910, and its current population is just over 400. The village is largely residential, without much in the way of industry, and its few commercial businesses serve Kingston residents and passersby on the state highway.

Alder Creek flows through the western portion of the village.

The village was settled by Alanson K. King in 1857 and, on May 28, 1867, a post office was opened under the name of Newbury. The name of the post office, and subsequently the community, was changed to Kingston on February 16, 1871, in honor of Mr. King, its first settler. Kingston was incorporated as a village in 1893.

Currently, the Kingston post office serves the village as well as the southern portion of Kingston Township.
