Dewey-Humboldt is know as "Arizona's Country Town". It is a rural area with a spread out feel. The town maintains it's small town reputation to the point of having a say in how the local tax revenues are allocated. Residents take pride in their local community by participating in Agua Fria/Dewey-Humboldt days for over 110 years. This celebration includes a parade, races, pie eating contest and grand ball. This celebration started in 1907 when trains brought 1,000 guests to help the locals celebrate their town. The local historical society maintains a museum showcasing families, town history and western values on Main St.
