The Friends of the Kingston Station is a non-profit corporation established in Rhode Island in 1973. Its purpose is primarily to preserve and protect the Kingston Train Station in southern Rhode Island, but it also offers a variety of education, safety, publication information, and rail travel promotion services. There are about 150 members, most living in the South County area.

The Friends are always looking for new members, and there are a variety of fun and interesting jobs available to new volunteers, including being a docent in the museum, giving rail safety presentations in schools, doing landscaping around the station, constructing exhibits and doing curatorial work in the museum, helping with model railroading classes, interacting with local and state transportation officials, and providing hospitality services to holiday rail travelers.
