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. 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 over 2,000 people

Located in Mohave County, Kingman has been the county seat since 1887. Federal, regional, state and local government offices and facilities are centrally located here. Recreation opportunities abound, with championship golf, tennis, softball, water sports, equestrian activities, hiking trails, hunting, fishing and any number of other outdoor pasttimes offered.

The area features several museums as well as annual festivals like the Kingman Air & Auto Show, Andy Devine Days Rodeo and the Mohave County Fair - complete with parimutual Thoroughbred racing and a rodeo.

Premium health care facilities are located in Kingman, including the Kingman Regional Medical Center and Del E. Webb Fitness Center. The community boasts award-winning pre-school through college-level educational facilities.

The entertainment centers of Las Vegas and Laughlin, Nevada,are only a short drive away, as are the Grand Canyon, Lake Havasu and the London Bridge, Lake Mohave, the Lake Mead National Recreation Area - boasting more than 1,000 miles of shoreline along the Colorado River - and snow-skiing opportunities in Flagstaff. Kingman is located at the foot of the Hualapai Mountains where the warmth of the desert gives way to pine forests inhabited by elk, deer, mountain lion and many other species of wildlife.

The population in the area has grown steadily, with more than 38,000 residents in the greater Kingman area, 175,000 in Mohave County and 32 million within 350-mile radius. The high-desert climate features hot summers and warm winters with modest precipitation.
