Silver was discovered in Humboldt Canyon early in 1860   The townsite of Humboldt City was platted out in 1861.  By 1863, the population had boomed to around 500.  Humboldt City was at its peak in 1863 with 200 houses, two hotels, two saloons and a blacksmith shop.   Ore production thrived from 1863 - 1864, but declined after 1864.   The post office was removed in 1869.   The area is well secluded and makes for a nice place to camp with plenty of wood available and two large stone walls that act as wind breaks.
