Wrightsville Historical Museum

Museum Day Hours of Operation: 9:00 am ‐ 4:00 pm

Located in a lovely 1871 home, our museum houses permanent information about the town, its people, famous bridges and canal. Wrightsville is known as the "farthest point reached by the Confederate Army " during the Civil War.


A permanent exhibit features the history of Wrightsville including a pictorial display on the bridges crossing the Susquehanna at Wrightsville. Changing displays feature aspects of the town, such as industry, from foundries to cigar making and the history of public education.

This venue will accept your Museum Day Live! ticket on the screen of your smartphone and in person.
