History:  

WRIGHT, a city in Lake View Township, sections 3 and 4, recalls the work of George Burdick Wright, who during many years was engaged in land examinations and locating new settlers in northern and western Minnesota. He was born in Williston, Vt., June 21, 1835, and died in Fergus Falls, Minn., April 29, 1882. He came to Minnesota in 1856 and first settled in Minneapolis; was the principal founder of Fergus Falls, in 1871; and secured the building of a branch of the Northern Pacific Railroad in 1881-82 from Wadena to Fergus Falls and Breckenridge.
