Kingman Tours: A Walkabout with Jim Hinckley

What is A Walkabout with Jim Hinckley?

Kingman Main Street is launching a public arts project in the heart of downtown Kingman, titled “Kingman Tours: A Walkabout Kingman with Jim Hinckley.”

A Walkabout Kingman with Jim Hinckley involves an interactive, self-guided tour of significant sites along Route 66 and in historic downtown Kingman – all beginning with a life-sized bronze sculpture of Mr. Hinckley himself.

Jim Hinckley is an internationally acclaimed author, historian, and tour guide specializing in Route 66 based right here in Kingman. Through this project, Kingman Main Street wishes to recognize Hinckley’s contributions to our community.

KMS has commissioned Arizona-based J. Anne Butler, an experienced figurative bronze sculptor to create a sculpture piece to be placed at the historic Kingman Train Depot at 4th Street and Andy Devine. This site would serve as the first stop of several distinct interactive downtown walking tours, with virtual guidance and narration by Hinckley.
