    Eastern York School District Real Estate

    Nestled along the banks of the Susquehanna River in eastern York County, Pennsylvania, the borough of Wrightsville, PA exemplifies small-town living at its finest. Wrightsville is also steeped in history — the town was named for John Wright, an English businessman who established a ferry that shuttled passengers back and forth across the Susquehanna River during the 18th century. The ferry was eventually replaced by the Columbia-Wrightsville Bridge in the early part of the 20th century. The bridge and the Wrightsville Historic District are both listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
