The Wyoming Historical Society was formally founded on November 12, 1981. Although its roots go back to the first Wyoming Historic House Tour, held in conjunction with the City of Wyoming Centennial in 1974. The initial meeting was held in 1981 with ten Wyoming citizens attending. The society's pourpose was defined as "collecting and preserving historical materials and infomation and encouraging interestin Wyoming's heritage."

For several years, the socity operated out of the homes of the officers and trustees. An active schedule of community projects was organized including educational annual meetings and a series of house tours, which were  highlighted by Wyoming's listing on the National Register of Historic Places in 1986. In 1993, the Society obtained a permanent headquarters in the lower level of the city administration building at 800 Oak Avenue. This location serves as the focal point for the Society's activities to this day.

The Society currently has a vigorous program to collect, preserve and catalog items of Wyoming history. We are active in community events such as the 4th of July Parade, Wyoming High School Alumni Round-Up Weekend and the Fall Festival. The archives of the Wyoming Women's Club, Woming Junior Women's Club, Wyoming Tennis Association, Wyoming High School Alumni Association, Wyoming Players and more have been entrusted to the Society.

The Society also promotes an historic marker project with 3 foot by 2 foot bronze markers going up around the city.
