Wright was founded in 1887 on the Stage Coach Line stop located seven miles northeast of Dodge City. The town was named for the owner of the stockyard on the Santa Fe line, Robert Wright. It did not become the cattle market its founders were hoping for, but eventually had a newspaper, several businesses, and a thriving grain and shipping company.
The ethnicity of its settlers is unknown.
