History:  

HUMBOLDT, a city in sections 23 and 26 of St. Vincent Township, was incorporated as a village on September 29, 1919; its post office was established as Fairview in 1889, changing to Humboldt in 1896, a name selected possibly to honor the many former German stockholders of the Great Northern Railway when it was completed in 1878, or to commemorate Baron Alexander von Humboldt (1769-1859), an eminent German scientist and author, who in 1799 to 1804 traveled in South America and Mexico.
