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.
In October 1857, Lieutenant Edward Fitzgerald Beale first explored the present site of Kingman when he and his team surveyed the 35th parallel in anticipation of building a wagon road. In the heat of the desert, they used camels for transportation, an idea they were sure would catch on. Alas, it never did. When the wagon road, stretching from Fort Defiance to the Colorado River was complete, it was named for the Lieutenant. Soon the Beale Road saw all manner of travelers trekking through the desert. In the beginning, these were primarily miners and prospectors seeking their fortunes.
