It was first named as a townsite in 1905.

The area is named after Admiral Sir Frederick Denham Bedford (1838-1913), Governor of Western Australia from 24 March 1903 to 22 April 1909. Governor Bedford chose some of the older street names to commemorate several famous Admirals.

The town hosts a full size replicas of Anne Hathaway's cottage and Shakespeare's Birthplace, built by Stanley Leopold Fowler at the end of the 20th-century.
