The city of Bellingham, Washington is located in Whatcom County where it serves as a county seat. Bellingham is the 12th-largest city in the state of Washington. The city of Bellingham includes the former townships of Fairhaven, Bellingham, Sehome and Whatcom.

Bellingham's residents get to enjoy the pace of a small-city with great access to the North cascades Mountains and San Juan Islands. Bellingham is not far from the bigger urban centers of Vancouver and Seattle.

The name Bellingham (comes from Bellingham Bay, that got its name from a Royal Navy controller, Sir William Bellingham George Vancouver named the bay when he explored the area in 1792.

The original inhabitants to the region were the Coast Salish peoples, though the first settlers didn't settle in the area until 1854, when they set up a small mill town. Four years later, thousands of storekeepers, scalawags and miners from California State descended on the region during the Fraser Canyon Gold Rush. The mill town was known as Whatcom then, and it boomed into a bustling seaport. The township of Whatcom served as the base town for the Whatcom Trail, that fortune seekers traversed to access the Fraser Canyon goldfields. The trail was mostly utilized despite an edict by colonial Governor James Douglas stipulating that anyone going to the goldfields must do so through Victoria, British Columbia.

When mining, construction and manufacturing decline, the average yearly salary of Bellingham people has also declined. Income within Bellingham and the county of Whatcom have been declining for more than 30 years as service-oriented jobs take over from more profitable jobs connected to production of goods. Service jobs presently account for 75% of non-agricultural employment in the county. The mean yearly income in the city of Bellingham is just less than $40,000, and the increase in wage have not kept pace with housing costs. Homes sell within the city area for more than the statewide median home price of $260,900.

The Bellingham Farmers Market features over 50 vendors selling produce and other wares each and every Saturday starting from early April to late December. The market also hosts community events and music. On the opening day of the market, the tradition of the city dictates that an official of the city throw a cabbage to a long standing vendor.
