Wyeville was originally named Necedah Junction because it was situated at the junction of the railroad line that ran toward Necedah. The local post office was called Wyeville, a variation of "Wythe", a county in Virginia. Eventually the name "Necedah Junction" was dropped and the community was called the same name as the post office. It is located on Wisconsin Highway 21. The railway junction became a crossing for the lines of the Chicago and North Western Railway and its subsidiary, the Omaha Road. Until 1963 passengers of Twin Cities 400 and the Rochester 400 changed trains there.[importance?]
