History of Columbia: 1795 William Wright Mansion – Historic Preservation Trust of Lancaster County

30 South 2nd Street

In 1795, William Wright, financier of the first bridge across the Susquehanna and grandson of one of the founders of the community of Columbia, built a mansion next to his aunt, Susanna Wright's home, the Wright's Ferry Mansion. Both of these residences originally faced the Susquehanna River but as the town developed, the back became the front.
