The Mohave County Courthouse and Jail buildings are located on North Fourth Street in Kingman, Mohave County, northwestern Arizona.

Jail[edit]

The jail was built in 1909-10 in the Neoclassical style. Pauley Jail Co. were the architects and John Mulligan was the contractor. The new jail replaced the old jail, because the prisoners were breaking out too easily. It is one of the few remaining county jails still in use in Arizona.

County courthouse[edit]

The county courthouse was built in 1915, also in the Neoclassical style, and was designed by the architectural firm Lescher & Kibbey based in Phoenix. J. M. Wheeler, and Collamore & Sons from Arkansas, were the contractors. The court house was built with native cut stone from the Metcalfe Quarry.

The court house was used by the Mohave County government for 70 years.

Both buildings were added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1983, as the Mohave County Municipal Complex (# 83002990).
