Wrightsville Remains of numerous limestone kilns are located at the north end of the borough along Front Street. These kilns were constructed and used by J.E. Baker Company. The limestone used for the kilns was quarried from the vicinity of the kilns. Before commercial quarrying started, almost every farmer located within the limestone region had their own kiln to manufacture lime.
