About

Wyeville, Wisconsin

The West Wisconsin Railway, authorized in 1876, connected St. Paul, Minnesota to the Chicago and North Western Railway in Elroy, Wisconsin. Originally named “Necedah Junction,” the post office established in 1890 adopted the name Wyeville. The change in name coincided with the dropping of “Necedah Junction” in 1911. Serving as a crucial railway crossing,

Wyeville witnessed significant rail traffic, including the Milwaukee, Sparta, and Northwestern Railroad’s “Air Line” from Adams to Sparta starting in 1910. Notably, until 1963, it was a key transfer point for passengers of the Twin Cities 400 and the Rochester 400 streamliners.
