Let us help you find Wrightsville homes for sale that fit your lifestyle and budget. Wrightsville is a historic borough in Lower Windsor Township in York County. Situated along the Susquehanna River, Wrightsville is named for John Wright, an early pioneer who settled n the area in 1728. The borough of Wrightsville was incorporated in 1834. A plaque at Sam S. Lewis State Park, which overlooks Wrightsville and the Susquehanna River, says Wrightsville was George Washington's first choice of location for the Capital of the United States. The world's longest covered bridge (5,960 feet) once spanned the Susquehanna River from Wrightsville to neighboring Columbia in Lancaster County. Built in 1814, it was destroyed by high water and ice in 1832. State militia burned a replacement bridge in June of 1863 during the Gettysburg Campaign in the American Civil War to prevent Confederate soldiers from crossing the bridge. Yet another replacement covered bridge was destroyed by a windstorm a few years later. The final bridge, the Pennsylvania Railroad Bridge, was a steel open-air bridge constructed in 1896 and razed in the early 1960s. Wrightsville is served by Eastern York School District, and elementary students attend Wrightsville Elementary School in Wrightsville.
