Yarnell dates back to about 1865, when Charles Genung discovered gold. A later prospector, Harrison Yarnell opened the Yarnell Mine in 1873, and it was he who the town was named after. Yarnell is known for its high karat gold. The Yarnell mine operated until 1940 when it ceased to be profitable.
The Yarnell Hill Fire overran and killed 19 wildland firefighters with the Granite Mountain Hotshots crew on June 30, 2013. It was the deadliest wildland fire for U.S. firefighters since 1933 and the greatest loss of U.S. firefighter life since the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.
