The story behind the names — Dewey-Humboldt
It was Dec. 20, 2004 when Dewey and Humboldt were wedded through incorporation. Although the two experienced vastly different upbringings, they had always had a symbiotic relationship.
Within these two stories lies the account of the two major industries in early Anglo Yavapai County history. Dewey was a ranching town providing the food, while her future husband Humboldt was a mining town earning the cold hard cash.
Like Prescott, Dewey and Humboldt have the distinction of being named for people for which there is no evidence they ever laid eyes on the towns named after them.
