Mt. Belleview Hotel in Wheeling

Mt. Belleview Hotel was a summer residence for wealthy Wheeling citizens. In 1891, the the 40-room hotel was purchased by Wheeling brewer Anton Reymann in 1891 and converted into the “Home for Aged and Friendless Women,” largely populated by immigrant women who had come to work in the United States as domestic servants, working in the homes of the wealthy, and had nowhere to live in their later years. It later became known as "Altenheim." Altenheim later moved to 1387 National Road and continues to operate as a home for elderly women.

The building was located at the corner of National Road and Altenheim Avenue, on the site of the present-day Kepner Funeral Home.
