Facts about Wyoming, RI, Rhode Island
Wyoming is a village and census-designated place on the Wood River in southern Rhode Island, primarily in the town of Richmond, but extending north across the river (which defines the town line) into the town of Hopkinton. It is the site of the Wyoming Village Historic District and a post office location, assigned ZIP code 02898.
The village was first settled in 1757 and was the site of industrial activity early in its history due to the ready availability of hydropower from the river. Brand’s Iron Works already existed on the Hopkinton side of the river as of 1787. A textile mill known as Brothers Cotton Mill was established on the Richmond side of Wyoming in 1814. A stagecoach road, the New London Turnpike (now Rhode Island Route 3), was built through the area in the following year. Also in 1815 a tavern was established on the Richmond side of the river to serve travelers on the turnpike. Two more textile mills were built on the Richmond, circa 1830 and 1845; they were later destroyed by fire.
In 1970, Interstate 95 was constructed a short distance east of Wyoming, with an exit close to the village. Proximity of the highway has led to commercial and residential development in and near the village.
The portion of Wyoming in the town of Hopkinton is included in the census-designated place of Hope Valley.
