Our combined influence can work to reshape American society. What do we want to accomplish and where do we want to start?"

Wylie, TX, If there had been no railroad – or if it had steamed through a different part of Collin County – there would be no Wylie.
Wylie’s story began during the “Golden Age” of railroading, an era that lasted from about the 1880s to the 1920s and changed the economic climate of the country. Although some U.S. citizens were troubled by trains – one Ohio school board claimed them to be “a device of the devil” and that travel by train would cause a “concussion of the brain” – no one could argue with the efficient manner in which rail transported goods.
Before there was Wylie, there was a small town called Nickelville. Some say it was so named because a nickel store was located there, and some say a local townsperson joked that no one who lived there “was worth a plug nickel.” In 1885, word spread through Nickelville and neighboring communities that the Santa Fe train tracks were fast approaching, bringing prosperity along for the ride.
After a number of surveys were made, however, railroad right-of-way engineers decided to lay track to the north of Nickelville. The agent and engineer in charge was Col. W.D. Wylie, from Paris, Texas, and legend has it that he was anxious to have a town named after him. The colonel promised he would do great things for this fledgling town if it bore his name, including, some say, buying new baseball uniforms for the local team.
Who could resist a campaign promise of that magnitude? Dr. John Butler, Nickelville’s earliest settler, submitted Wylie’s name to the town leaders, and, when the application for the new post office was received June 10, 1886, the name became official. Col. Wylie purchased 100 acres of land and began dividing it into city lots. Wylie was incorporated in November 1887 along the railroad right-of-way.
The first Gulf, Colorado and Santa Fe Railway train rolled into Wylie on Oct. 13, 1886, with Dallas dignitaries on board. A brass band played, welcoming speeches were given, and everyone was invited to have a free drink when complimentary kegs of beer rolled off the train.
“I'd prefer to die in Texas when I'm old. They say most good things end the same way they started, and that's where I entered the world, so that's how I'll leave it. ” Crystal Woods.

The city of Wylie is a voluntary member of the North Central Texas Council of Governments association, the purpose of which is to coordinate individual and collective local governments and facilitate regional solutions, eliminate unnecessary duplication, and enable joint decisions.
Originally called Nickelville, reportedly after the name of the first store, it was organized in the early 1870s. The Gulf, Colorado and Santa Fe Railway laid tracks a half mile north of the original townsite in 1886. The businesses of Nickelville moved to take advantage of the railroad within the following year, and the City of Wylie was incorporated in 1887 along the right-of-way. It was named for Lt. Colonel William D. Wylie, a right-of-way agent for the railroad and Civil War veteran.
