History on a Pinhead

Stanfield was named after the Stanfield Brothers Ranch, a 22,000 acre spread that had included land settled by Joe Campbell in the early 1880s. A post office opened in 1903 and closed two short years later. Early population figures are not available, but throughout the 1940s and 1950s, the estimate was 50. It had dropped to 30 by the mid 1960s, and the current figure of 35 continues to be used.
