Humboldt County History: 

Iowa’s entry to the union was approved by Congress on March 3, 1845, with statehood beginning on December 28, 1846, following approval of the state’s constitution and boundaries. In order to establish county government across the state, the Iowa General Assembly passed an act on January 15, 1851 which created fifty counties in the half of the state where county government had not yet been established. Humboldt County was created by this act, containing its present area, as well as four townships in present-day Webster County: Jackson, Deer Creek, Badger, and Newark.[3] It was named after Alexander von Humboldt.[4] On January 21, 1855, an act merged the northern half of Humboldt County and Bancroft County into Kossuth County, with the southern half of Humboldt County merging into Webster County.
