Founded: 1886 Penalosa is a small town in extreme northern Kingman County. It has an extensive co-op and elevator, and two churches. On the north side of town, notice the impressive old school buildings. They are in ruins now, but they still illustrate the pride and vision of the settlers. The old bank building (later a post office) is not used now, but still contains the old ornate teller cages with marble inserts. It's the oldest building in Penalosa.
