Mohave County is located in the northwest corner of Arizona, the county seat is Kingman, and it also contains the somewhat newer 'river city' known as Bullhead City, which is across the Colorado River from Laughlin, Nevada. Hoover Dam is also partly included in the county due to it being built to dam the Colorado River to create Lake Mead. The word 'Mohave' is a variant spelling of 'Mojave'.
10 Nov 1864--Mohave County was created as one of the four original counties in Arizona.
County seat: Kingman 
On 22 December 1865 a large part of northwest Mohave County was taken away by Arizona to create Pah-Ute County.
About a year later, most of Pah-Ute county was given to Nevada by the US government. The remainder of Pah-Ute County was restored to Mohave County on 18 February 1871.
In 1883 the part of Yavapai County north of the Colorado River and west of Kanab Wash was transferred to Mohave County.
