Map Collection at the Ohio County Public Library


About this collection:

➤ The Map Collection consists of individual maps of Wheeling, WV and the surrounding Ohio Valley as well as maps of the state of West Virginia. Early notable maps of the Wheeling area include the 1853 Map of the City of Wheeling and Suburbs, Ohio County, Virginia (Manfred & Simpson) and the 1870 Map of the City of Wheeling, South Wheeling and La Grange, West Virginia (Jas. Gilchrist, C.E. & F.W. Beers & Co.). Later maps of Wheeling depict surrounding areas including Glen Dale, Warwood, Elm Grove, and Martins Ferry and Bridgeport, OH. The library holds both photocopies and original maps in this collection and the inventory includes this designation.

Below is a link to an inventory of the maps available to view at the library. Click on the "City" tab in the lower-left corner to narrow your search to Wheeling maps only. Click on the "State" tab to narrow your search to West Virginia maps.

These maps have not been digitized, but are available to view at the Library by appointment.
