Dumont was founded in the 1940s by Italian colonists originally hired
by Henrique Dumont (1832-1892), owner of the Dumont Coffee Company and
father of the aviation pioneer Alberto Santos-Dumont (1873-1932). The
district of Dumont was established in 1953 as part of the municipality
of Ribeirão Preto.
The municipality of Dumont was established by State Law No. 8,050 of
