George Bonelli built the house with local tufa stone from Metcalfe Quarry. Construction is 2 stories, rectangular, low hipped roof with dormers recessed galerie on 3 sides supported by square wooden pillars, front center entrance with transom and sidelights, interior chimneys, French doors and tall windows for ventilation, 12-14" insulating walls; early plumbing and wiring intact, many original furnishings. A vernacular adaptation of the “raised cottage style” well suited for the desert climate.
This was the second home on the same property, the original home burned down in 1915. The Bonellis owned a large ranch, general store, and jewelry store, and a meat market in Chloride, Arizona.
The property belongs to the City of Kingman and is operated as a historic house museum by the Mohave County Historical Society. The Society also operates the Mohave Museum of History and Arts.

This was a fun little tour of the Bonelli House, and my tour guide was thorough and informative. The entrance fee was minimal. The house holds many of the original furnishings and was so very charming. At the end of the tour I was given a voucher for free entrance to the following: The Mohave Museum of History & Arts The Route 66 Museum & The Bonelli House **I'm not sure if this voucher is given to every person who pays for entrance into the Bonelli House **
Nice historical part of kingman definitely worth checking out if your into that the house is furnished with stuff from the era in which the house was used as a house I enjoyed my visit there
