Kingman was founded in 1882 as a modest railroad siding at Camp Beale Springs along the newly constructed route of the Atlantic and Pacific Railroad. The community was named after Lewis Kingman, who surveyed the railroad’s right of way between Albuquerque, NM and Needles, CA. Throughout much of its history, Kingman's economy relied on the mining of gold, silver, copper, and later molybdenum, as well as ranching. In 1979, the Airport and Industrial Park began operations as a way to diversify the local economy. Since then, 70 companies have located within the park employing 2,000 people
