Wyoming, New York is a village located in the town of Middlebury in the northeastern corner of Wyoming County. The village of Wyoming is pretty unique, as it’s the only “gaslight village” remaining in New York State. Most other municipalities moved their public utilities over to electric in some cases a century ago. But, Wyoming didn’t.
Today, you can see the gaslit lamps all up and down the sidewalks of the village of Wyoming.
At the Post Office, which serves zip code 14591 and the village, you can see a gaslit lamp right out front. This stop was a quick one while driving up Route 19 from Letchworth. At the time of my visit, the Post Office was closed, so just seeing the outside would have to do.
The building is fairly nondescript, but the sign way up on the second floor looks like it may have been hand-painted. If not, at the very least it certainly looks vintage!
