 WHEELING–LA BELLE NAIL COMPANY RECORDS

▼ About this collection:
At the time of its closing in 2010, the LaBelle plant had been producing its signature cut nail for nearly 160 years. For several years, the building lay empty and idle while nail machines dating to the 19th century, nail processing equipment, and administrative records all lay collecting dust. In 2015, when much of the interior equipment was up for auction, Wheeling Heritage bought the paper records that resided in the building for $5. Wheeling Heritage procured a grant to process the collection and donated the 100+ linear foot collection to the Archives and Special Collections Department at the Ohio County Public Library in 2018.
