The County was organized in
Named after Silas Wright, Congressman, U.S. Senator and
Governor of New York.
The County Seat is
Situated in the southwestern part of
the State, upon the high table lands of the Ozark range, this
county presents a great variety of surfaces, from the level or
moderately undulating prairie to the rugged hills and miniature
mountains. The soil in the valleys and here and there on the
uplands is fertile and produces very satisfactory crops.
Farmers have raised good crops of hemp-say 1200 pounds to
the acre; tobacco 1200; corn 75 bushels, and other grains, grasses
and vegetables in proportion. The gravelly portions of the upland
are well adapted to fruit culture, and particularly favorable for
grapes. Stock raising will always pay well. Lead ore
has been found at numerous localities in the county, but no mines
opened that have been reported. Population in 1860, 4,508.
