Mohave County Courthouse
Built 1915
Built of locally quarried tufa stone, the Mohave County Courthouse has been the center of county government since 1915. It is the best example of Neo-Classical Revival style in Kingman. Its distinguishing features are a pedimented portico supported by four tapered Doric columns, a small iron-railed balcony over the main entry, and a centrally domed stained glass skylight above the second-story courtroom.
