Photo of the brick dormitory of the Truxton Canyon Indian School outside Kingman, established in 1901, as seen from the Atlantic & Pacific railroad line, taken some time between 1901 and 1912, when the dormitory was expanded. A similar shot was published as a "Phostint" postcard describing the school as "...a U.S. Government Indian school where the Hualapai and Havasupai Indians were made over into educated citizens." The school closed in May 1937, and the dorm was demolished in 1960. Its bricks, manufactured on site with Indian labor, were recycled to build the Mohave County Museum of History and Arts in Kingman.
