Kings Island History
Kings Meadow is named for its location alongside Kings Island. Kings Island now owned by Eversource Energy and was previously owned and inhabited by Dewitt Clinton Terry and his family for 35 years back in 1864. Terry was a member of a religious sect “The Millerites” which believed the world was going to end. Millerites groups would travel to the island on several occasions for the anticipated “final day”. There is still evidence of Terry’s farmhouse, barns, and stone walls that can be found throughout the island. Today, the Island can still be accessed by kayakers, jet skiers, and motorboats that can camp on the premises and explore the Connecticut River and is expanding as the “Connecticut River Paddlers’ Trail”.
