A city reveals its unique past through its historic buildings, but cultural heritage can also extend beyond bricks and mortar. Humboldt’s pre-1920 buildings and street signs are just a couple aspects of the downtown core that add to the City's history and collective memory. Join us in celebrating Humboldt’s past through discovering the City’s commemorative street signs and historic buildings. Each site embodies a story that we invite you to discover.
Through our research, we have pieced together a brief history of these sites based on their occupancy and use, rather than architectural revisions. It is not the complete story. History reveals itself each day through the memories of people who used these buildings and sites. If you have any stories about these historic landmarks, we would love to hear from you.
This research was completed in collaboration with the Humboldt Downtown Business Improvement Committee and the Department of Cultural Services.
