About Enoch Wright

The Wright families occupied log dwellings on the property until Enoch Wright built the Wright House in 1815/16. Enoch was the son of Joshua and his wife, Charity Sawin. The house was designed for two families with a kitchen at each end. It was originally occupied by Enoch, his wife Rachel James, and possibly his mother on one side. Enoch and Rachel’s only child, Rev. Joseph Wright, his wife, Catherine Hopkins, and their children lived on the other side of the house until about 1838. Enoch died in 1846 and Rachel died in 1860. Enoch willed the house and land to his oldest grandson, Joshua Enoch Wright, who lived there until 1861. After that the house became rental property.

Enoch Wright House is a historic building in Peters Township, Pennsylvania.
