Kinross is a city in Keokuk County, Iowa, United States. The population was 80 at the 2000 census. The community is named after a place in Scotland. Kinross is now essentially a ghost town, having no public businesses or schools, the large closed brick school and an abandoned gas station are the only indicators of a town.



Kinross was created by people moving to be close to a new railroad depot in 1879 by moving both houses and businesses. This move along with other departures effectively turned their prior community, Hinkletown, into a ghost town.
