The beginnings of Welfare

Once known as Bonton, the original name of the 1875 post office, it was changed to Welfare in 1880, possibly for the German word `Wohlfarht`, meaning pleasant trip. Carl Phillip Beseler was area`s first postmaster: serving Bonton and then as the first postmaster for Welfare.
