Humboldt County, Utah Territory was organized 5 January 1856[1] from the far western parts of Weber, Desert, Tooele, and Juab counties. This county included all of present-day Nevada between 116° and 118° west longitude, and 39° 30' and 42° north latitude.[2]

Utah Territory's old 1856 counties are named in orange. Present-day Nevada counties are outlined in white.
Humboldt County as part of Utah Territory was discontinued 2 March 1861 when Nevada Territory was created. However, at that time Nevada organized a new Humboldt County to the northwest of the old. Part of the old became part of the new Humboldt, Pershing, Churchill, Elko, Lander, and Eureka counties.[3] [4]
