Kingman has excellent rail service with the Burlington Northern Santa Fe railway going through it with over 100 trains per day. The best part, there is no tie-up of traffic in the city due to railroad underpasses. Now that's planning!
Kingman was named after Lewis Kingman, the locating engineer for the railroad, the man responsible for selecting the location of the roadbed. The town got its start as a small railroad camp for the Atlantic & Pacific Railroad. Surveyor Lewis Kingman named the spot for himself.
