Dewey and Humboldt represented two distinct communities during the last 100 + years with Dewey providing an agricultural and ranching economy while the Humboldt area had an economy based in mining.
After the smelter burnt to the ground in 1902, a larger smelting plant was built, serving much of the then Arizona Territory. In 1905, the town was renamed Humboldt, in honor of Alexander Von Humboldt, a noted Prussian geographer, who had visited the area (New Spain at the time) in 1838. The rich ores, along with the smelter and the convenience of the railroad, contributed to the district’s mining boom and population growth.
When visiting Humboldt today, the smelter’s smokestack stands alone, casting its shadow over the century-old town buildings. It is a remnant and reminder of the region’s mining history.
