Oprah’s Lovetown USA | Filmed for OWN

Welcome to 'Lovetown, USA' home of Oprah Winfrey’s reality TV show! Kingsland is

located off of Interstate 95 at Exit 3, stop in and feel the 'LOVE' of our community!  The

'Lovetown, USA’, television series was filmed by BBC Worldwide and televised on the

OWN (Oprah Winfrey Network) in 2012 and is currently showing internationally. What

an experience sharing our community with the viewers of the Oprah Winfrey Network

and the world! It was amazing seeing glimpses of the wonderful things that happened

in the community and being reminded of the beautiful place we live.

‘Lovetown, USA‘ began as a nationwide search of small communities around 15,000

who competed to be selected as Oprah’s Lovetown, USA. Competition was fierce and

our small group of 11 people began the quest to become Oprah Winfrey’s Lovetown,

USA. Oprah challenged us to show ‘love’ in our community! Our small group grew to

over 300 area volunteers and community members working to show the love in

Camden County. From Town Hall meetings to Singles Socials, the group worked to

meet each goal set by BBC Worldwide and OWN to remain in the competition each

week.

After three months, Oprah Winfrey announced to the nation that Kingsland Georgia

was selected as Lovetown, USA! Armed with great ideas for events and for each of the

eight episodes to be filmed, the BBC Producers came to our corner of Southeast

Georgia. The communities of Camden County stepped up full force to show off their

communities to the world!

Each episode featured singles trying to find love and community projects expressing

love. Some of the great projects that happened because Oprah came to visit were: 

The renewal of wedding vows of happily married couples at Heritage Garden

Weddings & Chapel, the Lovetown Ball held at Laurel Island Links Golf Course, the

building of a basketball court at the St Marys Methodist Boys Home complete with a

visit from the Harlem Globe Trotters, the creation of the ‘Seeds of Love’ community

garden that supports those in need of a meal from Missions for Camden, the Annual

Mardi Gras Parade embarrassed the event as the Love Parade, Sarah Evans came to

town during the Arts & Crafts Festival held in Historic Downtown Kingsland and

individuals in need received assistance.

Oprah made a few visits to the area during the filming of Lovetown, USA. Oprah made her

first appearance to the area by way of the United States Coast Guard as they traveled over

the St Marys River, filmed her tribute to longtime friend Whitney Houston at the Historic

Kingsland Depot which served as Lovetown, USA Headquarters during the filming and

attended the final episode ‘Love Ball’ held at Laurel Island Links Golf Course.

Hundreds of hours of film never made it to the television screen, but hundreds of

memories stay in our hearts from the Lovetown, USA experience. The community grew

closer, joined together for projects for the greater good and made us all appreciate each

other a little more. The love that was in our community before Lovetown continues, the

love that was expressed to the nation continues and we had the honor of being Oprah’s

first Lovetown, USA!
