Wright County Townships
Wright County was organized in February 20, 1855 under the Territorial Government.  At that time Precincts were set up  as divisions.  Townships came into being when the State of Minnesota came into being.  The Townships were first organized by the County Commissioners, who set a date for the first meeting and election of Township officers to be held.
