History:  The City of Wylie was incorporated in 1887 along the rights-of-way of the Gulf, Colorado and Santa Fe Railway. It was named for Colonel W.D. Wylie, a Santa Fe Railroad official and Civil War veteran.
 
By 1890, Wylie's population had increased to 239 and it's first one-room school was built. From 1890 to 1900, the population increased by 300% and a two-story schoolhouse was built along with the addition of a bank and gin mills.
 
In 1920, Wylie received electrical service and streetlights; Ballard Avenue was graveled in 1923; and Wylie enjoyed the self-proclaimed "Onion Capital of the World" title in the 30's and 40's. Due to the late night get-togethers of citizens in which businesses stayed open until midnight on some nights, "Wide Awake Wylie" became the City's nickname in the late 40's and 50's
 
In the late 70's, Wylie began to receive some of the DFW growth. It's population grew significantly specifically in the 80's and 90's.

In the 21st Century, Wylie has become one of the fastest growing communities in Collin County, DFW Metroplex and the State of Texas. With this growth, the City has made a transition from "bedroom" community to a "balanced" community combining quality residential living with a healthy business climate.
