The museum at Wrightsville is located in a house built in 1871 by Calvin S. Budding, an Adjutant in the 45th Regiment Pennsylvania Volunteers during the Civil War. His descendant, Mary Redman, lived in the home with her husband John and their three daughters. Upon the death of their parents, the house was given to Historic Wrightsville, Inc. Since that time, it has served as the home of this organization that has done much to preserve the rich heritage of the town.
The first floor of the museum contains display rooms housing both permanent exhibits on the history of the town, including information on the different bridges at Wrightsville and special exhibits on particular aspects of local history.
Knowledgeable docents are available to answer questions concerning the town and surrounding area.
