HISTORIC DISTRICTS OF WHEELING

Designated as areas of historic or architectural significance, the National Register of Historic Places identifies historic districts as part of the United States Department of Interior's National Park Service program to coordinate and support public and private efforts to identify, evaluate, and protect America's historic and archaeological resources. Currently, in addition to over thirty individual properties, eleven historic districts (see below) have been recognized in Wheeling.
