This is an amazing little town to grow a family. It is safe. The people are great, everyone waves and says hello. The square up town is filling up with different businesses. It is just an amazing community that everyone should visit.

Humboldt is a friendly small town with a wonderful public school and is less than two hours from a big city. There is a local grocery store that always has fresh cut meat and good produce. Everyone is happy to meet new people and willing to help in an instant.
