Mohave County Jail
Built 1910
Noteworthy as one of the first cast-in-place concrete structures in Kingman, the county jail building was constructed in 1910. Metal floors in the jail cell area are a unique feature which has caused jailers to call the cells, "natural lie detectors." The Mohave County Jail is one of the few historic detached county jail buildings remaining in the State of Arizona.
 
Erected by Arizona State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO), City of Kingman Historic Preservation Commission, Main Street Kingman & National Park Service (NPS).
