The Village of Wyoming owes its birth and early growth to the Great Western Railway. Until its rail line was constructed through Wyoming from Sarnia to London the area was predominantly farm land.
Plympton Township dates back to 1827, when Sir John Colborne named it after a town in England close to his wife’s home. Colborne also named the City of Sarnia.
In 2001, the Village of Wyoming and the Township of Plympton amalgamated to form Plympton-Wyoming. Today, Plympton-Wyoming has a population of approximately 7,500 and represents a blend of rural and urban living. The town covers an area of just under 320 square kilometers (79,073 acres). The communities of Wyoming, Camlachie, Reece’s Corners, Blue Point and Hillsborough Beach are included in the borders of Plympton-Wyoming.
The Village of Wyoming is home to the County of Lambton’s administrative offices. Lakefront homes and cottages abound in the north end of Plympton-Wyoming in communities like Errol Village, Blue Point, Highland Glen and Hillsborough Beach.
