Product Overview

The story of Humboldt County begins with a settlement of
progressive dissenters and New England conservatives in north
central Iowa. It is the tale of land-starved Scandinavian and Northern
European immigrants who traveled to the area seeking rich soil for
their farms. Early settlement in the county began in 1854, and Dakota
City became the county seat. In 1863, the Reverend Stephen H. Taft
brought a colony of his followers to form Springvale, now the city
of Humboldt. After the coming of the railroad in 1879, the county
prospered from the sale of agricultural products and equipment. Today,
new industries are attracted to Humboldt County''s skilled labor force,
work ethic, and high quality of life. The combination of high-tech
school facilities and a wide range of recreational opportunities attracts
thousands of people every year.
