Access to the Prosperous East

The mighty Pennsylvania Railroad rolled into Wheeling on February 24, 1878. It provided access north to Pittsburgh and south to Parkersburg for Wheeling's industrial products. It also enabled Wheeling's farmers and manufacturers to increase trade with the East. Many of Wheeling's young men waved goodbye to their mothers and sweethearts for the last time from the Water Street depot before going off to World War I and World War II.
