Wright County, Minnesota

 

 Original Assessment, 1855

The meager extent to which the county had been improved in 1855 is shown by the original assessment roll which is still preserved. There was no real estate assessment, as the title to the land was still vested in the government. Land improvements but not the land, were taxed. Taxes were also levied on buildings, stock, and goods held for sale. In the list published below there will be found under each name and following the enumeration, the total assessment, the amount of the tax to be paid for county purposes and the amount of tax to be paid for school purposes:
