Established on February 20th, 1855, Wright County is located to the northwest of the Twin Cities. The county was named after Silas Wright, a New York politician serving from 1827-1846. After the county was created, many German and Swedish immigrants flocked to the area, which is made up of rich soils great for agriculture. Though much of Wright County remains rural to this day, the population is now just fewer than 130,000 residents.
