About Ft. Wright
To look at this pleasant, progressive community one would never guess what an exciting past it has. This is where General Horatio Governeur Wright helped defend the area against the Confederate invasion at the fortification called Fort Wright.
More than a century later, Ft. Wright has progressed into a quiet, charming community. Freshly paved streets form a winding ribbon that encircles its hills and byways in a graceful contour of housing developments and scenic neighborhoods. Although the homes are interestingly varied in age, design and size, they are consistently imbued with a look of solid prosperity. Throughout Ft. Wright, the manner of residents is friendly, outgoing and congenial. It is always a happy choice for those who are looking for a home in an attractive, well-established community of 5,700 residents. The city’s motto is: “Neighbors Helping Neighbors”.
