Chloride Murals

Looking for a day trip? Consider Chloride, AZ, just 22 miles from Kingman.

Located in the hills behind Chloride, AZ are the famous Purcell Murals painted by the artist Roy Purcell. In 1966, Roy Purcell took a break from pursuing a Master's degree in Fine Arts at Utah State University to labor as a miner in the Cerbat Mountains near Chloride, Arizona.

While he was there, and with the support of local residents, he painted "The Journey," a 2,000-square-foot set of murals on some boulders about a mile and a half outside of Chloride. The murals have held up well during the many years, and the colors remain vibrant.

To the murals: From the center of town drive up Tennessee Avenue for about one-half mile until it turns to gravel. You can park here and walk, or if you have a four-wheel-drive vehicle you can continue driving. After you cross the rocky, usually dry wash, you’ll need to stay right at the fork. After about one mile, stay left at another fork. About 50 yards farther look for the parking pullout on the right and park here. Head on foot about a quarter-mile to the murals on your right.
