United Methodist Church
Built 1917
Constructed of locally quarried tufa stone, this is the second building constructed for the Methodist congregation, Kingman's oldest organized religious group. The use of the Roman temple form with six Tuscan columns on a raised podium with pediment metal railings is rare for the Neo-Classical Revival period. This is the best example of this type in Arizona. Movie stars Clark Gable and Carole Lombard were married here on March 29, 1939.
