Front Door to the City on the Ohio River

The Wheeling Wharf played a crucial role in bringing people and products to and from our growing city. The port has seen the arrival of visitors such as Lafayette, Meriwether Lewis, Mark Twain, and thousands of steamboat passengers. The port was also the debarkation point for La Belle cut nails, Marsh stogies, Mail Pouch tobacco, and a host of other famous Wheeling products. The Wheeling Wharf was the point around which the city grew and prospered.
