Wyoming Borough was founded in 1885 by a number of progressive citizens. At that time the borough had a population of only 1,000.
Today, Wyoming is mostly residential consisting of 3,200 residents. However, there are many commercial or non-residential listings, the Midway Shopping Center and the State Police Barracks, to name a few. The Borough has two parks, Pettebone Memorial Park on Pettebone Street, and Butler St. Park located on the corner of 8th and Butler Streets.
Wyoming is considered “Historic.” Included in the town are some historic places, Swetland Homestead; Wyoming Monument; Wyoming Cemetery; and the Wyoming Borough Town Hall which is the county's oldest town hall still in use. The town hall celebrated its 100th birthday in 2002.
