Kingman was initially established as a stopping point on the predominant wagon trail that ran across the 35th parallel, which later became a portion of route 66. The town was also established as a prominent railroad stop, and it was later used as a site for a U.S. army airfield during WWII. After the end of the war, several prominent employers relocated to the area and provided a number of positions in different industries including automobiles, mining and manufacturing. Today, some of this industry remains. However, residents mostly work for the medical center, the county and the local schools.
