The Village of Wrightstown may be one of the first incorporated municipalities in Brown County. Yet it simultaneously honors where it’s been (including various eras of architecture) as well as where it’s going as it continues to grow and evolve.
Wrightstown has a small-town heart. Neighbors help neighbors by keeping an eye on their home or watering their flowers while they’re out of town. Parks are filled with kids playing Little League games and families heading out onto the Fox River via the newly-rebuilt boat and kayak launch. The local business alliance adorns the downtown’s street lights with holiday decorations.
Wrightstown is located midpoint between Green Bay and Appleton, but it’s more than a convenient midpoint. It’s a community of choice for its excellent school system and affordable housing options, be it the newly-developed subdivisions, higher-end multifamily units or townhomes and condominiums. You’ll find residential neighborhoods on both sides of the river, featuring friendly neighbors among a variety of affordable housing options.
Much of the community is centered around its water access, whether that’s boating, fishing (FallFest offers several small fishing tournaments), snowmobiling or ice fishing. The community is hopping with events, be it farmers’ markets, craft sales, kids’ events, color runs, car shows or music downtown. And let’s not forget cheering on the Wrightstown Tigers; the community has strong softball, basketball, wrestling, soccer and volleyball teams.
