City of Wylie

Wylie was incorporated in 1887 along the Gulf, Colorado and Santa Fe Railway right-of-way. The town earned the nickname “Wide-Awake Wylie.” As the railroad infused the town with visitors and commerce, shop owners stayed open late to accommodate the crowds gathering to shop for groceries and dry goods and catch up on the latest news with friends and neighbors.Wylie embraces growth and prosperity without sacrificing its hometown appeal.
