History:  

SHELLY Township, organized in 1879, was named for John Shely, with a variant form of his name, a trapper, who was the first homestead farmer of this township, was later a wheat buyer at Ada, and thence removed to Duluth as an assistant grain inspector for the state. Shely was born in Vermont in 1847, came to Minnesota in 1854, and died in 1898 in Crookston. The city in section 18 was platted in 1896 and incorporated as a village on July 11, 1902; it had a Great Northern Railway station, and the post office began in 1896.
