Youngberg is a populated place situated in Pinal County, Arizona.[2] Originally called Goldfield due to the nearby gold mines, The Goldfield Post Office was established on October 7, 1893 with James L Patterson as its first Postmaster.[3] This was the same year that George U. Young arrived. After his arrival, the community also became known as Youngsberg. When the gold mines closed in 1897 the post office soon followed in 1898.[3][4] The town depopulated, before a new small community developed, and became known under its current name, which was in honor of Young, who was the Secretary for the Arizona Territory from 1909 to 1910. The Youngberg Post Office opened in 1920, and remained until 1926. It has an estimated elevation of 2,024 feet (617 m) above sea level.[1]
