It was originally the homeland of the Lenape Indians, and the town's name means "land of flats" in the Delaware language. The land was given to William Penn in 1685, but a permanent settlement was not established until 1896, as an area for lumber-dealing and as a through-point for the Reading Railroad.
Today, Wyomissing is a suburban area best known for its stately, colonial-style upper middle class homes.
