Description: Welcome to the Borough of Wrightsville, York County, Pennsylvania. Our quaint town is located along the western banks of the Susquehanna River in the Susquehanna Valley Region of Pennsylvania and is well known for the burning of the bridge during the Civil War in 1863. A plaque located in the Samuel Lewis State Park indicates that George Washington considered Wrightsville as a possible location for the capital of the United States. Named for early pioneer John Wright, the Borough of Wrightsville was incorporated in 1834. The incorporation merged the village of Wrightsville with the town of West Phalia.
