Kingsland Commercial Historic District, National Register of Historic Places
This seems to be where it all began, in 1949. When blood tests were required for marriage licenses, Kingsland saw an opportunity. Make it easy to get a blood test and a license and reap the revenue. It was a good idea and it led to Kingsland’s distinction as the “Marriage Capital of the South”. Georgia hasn’t required blood tests for licenses since 2003, so the old sign is just a nice reminder of what helped put Kingsland on the map.
