Bellingham WA
Just over 100 years ago an extraordinary thing happened on the shores of Puget Sound a few miles south of the Canadian border. Maybe it was the area's primordial beauty and the profoundly calming peace about the place that did it. Or possibly glass-clear water and pure sweet air possessed citizens of four competitive towns -Whatcom, Bellingham, Sehome and Fairhaven- to cast aside personal agendas and merge their communities into one. Why? To attract a railroad center -like Chicago's-to northwest Washington State.

The name they agreed on was the City of Bellingham, for the surrounding bay named by Captain George Vancouver in 1792 in honor of his friend Sir William Bellingham.

But alas, a railroad was not to be and in time a somewhat larger town to the south stole the dream away. Still, all the pristine qualities that compelled Bellingham's citizens to join in peaceful union remain for the sharing today.
