The Route 66
city of Kingman, Arizona, the county seat of Mohave County, got its start when the Atlantic and Pacific Railroad came through in 1882.
By the turn of the century, Kingman had grown to some 500 people and continued to develop as gold was discovered in the hills surrounding area.
Today, the Kingman area is home to some 45,000 people with numerous recreational opportunities nearby, including the Colorado River, Lake Mead, Lake Havasu, and Lake Mohave. It is also the closest city to the Grand Canyon Skywalk, the transparent horseshoe-shaped cantilever bridge on the edge of the Canyon that is a popular tourist stop.
