South Kingstown is a town in Washington County, Rhode Island. It contains several distinct villages, including Wakefield, Kingston, and Peace Dale.

Until 1722, South Kingstown was part of a larger town called Kings Towne, which was split in 1722 to form North Kingstown and South Kingstown. The town of Narragansett was split off from South Kingstown in 1888.

Note: Washington County is named for George Washington and did not exist under that name in colonial times. Before the Revolutionary War, it was called Kings County. The county was formed in 1729.
