Wycheproof - Fast Facts

Wycheproof
Small country service centre
Wycheproof is a small country town of some 800 people which has the distinction of a railway line traversing the main thoroughfare. This circumstance apparently arose because the government was unwilling to pay extra money to purchase land especially for the track. This section of the highway is known as Broadway St. It seems difficult to credit but an American-born chemist came up with the name in the 1880s as it reminded him of New York's Broadway. Perhaps New York was smaller then.
