History:  

PERLEY, a city in section 30 of Lee Township, was named in honor of George Edmund Perley of Moorhead. He was born in Lempster, N.H., August 19, 1853; was graduated at Dartmouth College, 1878; was admitted to practice law in 1883 and came to Minnesota the next year, settling in Moorhead; was a representative in the legislature in 1903-5. The city began as a Great Northern Railway village in 1883 and was incorporated as a village on September 27, 1906. The post office was first named Aabye, 1884-85, located four miles southwest on the river in the trading post of Andrew T. Aabye, postmaster, who moved his store into the village and continued as postmaster when the name changed to Perley.
