Comments:

Youngberg is a populated place situated in Pinal County, Arizona.  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.  This was the same year that George U. Young arrived. After his arrival, the community also became known as Youngsberg.

Remains:

When the gold mines closed in 1897 the post office soon followed in 1898.   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.
