History:  

BELLINGHAM, a city in Perry Township, sections 3, 4, 9, and 10, incorporated as a village on May 5, 1890, and platted by the owners, William R. and Mary P. Thomas and Robert and Phebe (Morse) Bellingham (d. 1889). The county newspaper first suggested the name Perry after its township name, but Phebe (Morse) Bellingham named it for her father-in-law, Charles Thomas Saker Bellingham (b. 1823, England; d. 1905, Bellingham), the patriarch of the large Bellingham family (seven sons, one daughter), who lived in the area. The Great Northern Railway came in 1887, and the depot was built in 1888. Banker Hans M. Hagestead was the first postmaster when the post office opened in 1887, and he later was township manager and brought the newspaper to the village in 1891.
