Our History

Wright Funeral Home...Moorhead's oldest business was founded 135 years ago in 1881 by A.J. Wright. His great grandson, Steve Wright, serves the community along with a dedicated, compassionate, and competent staff. Entrusted by generations, the Wright family is dedicated to offering the most sensitive, compassionate and competent care possible along with facilities that provide a comforting, contemporary and beautiful environment.


The firm was expanded in 1987 to include the Vigen Funeral Home in Hawley and Lake Park, Minnesota. In 2008, we built a new state-of-the-art facility in Hawley and in 2012 we expanded and beautifully remodeled our Moorhead facility.  More about our facilities can be found here.
