Agape Baptist ChurchThe First Church of Christ Scientist in Wheeling was organized in 1906. The congregation dedicated their church building, located at the northwest corner of 14th and Jacob streets, April 4, 1926. Designed by E. Edward Wolfe of Sandusky, Ohio, the building features a blond brick facade with Doric columns lining the entryway. Stone sills support opaque geometric windows.
