The land that now makes up the Hamlet of Kingman, once belonged to Edmund Thompson, who donated the land for the community to be built. Kingman was established in 1909 with the opening of a post office and many other businesses soon followed. In 1910, the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway was completed through Kingman to Calgary and construction started on a depot. It looked as though Kingman would grow and prosper. During the 1920s trains ran daily except Sunday. By the mid-1930s, there was only one passenger train a week and freight trains ran only when needed to haul grain. In the mid-1960s, rail service between Kingman and Camrose was discontinued and the station was removed. The rails were lifted in 1978. Kingman may be the only community in Alberta that still has a hitchin' post in front of the post office. Local resident Raymond Peterson noticed a girl that came to Kingman on her horse to get the mail. She had nowhere to tie her horse so he built it for her.
As a designated place in the 2011 Census, Kingman had a population of 90 living in 40 of its 45 total dwellings, a 3.4% change from its 2006 population of 87. With a land area of 0.41 km2 (0.16 sq mi), it had a population density of 220/km2 (570/sq mi) in 2011.
