Overview

Wheeling, West Virginia (Then and Now Series) by Seán Patrick Duffy, Paul Rinkes


The convergence of the Ohio River, the National Road, a remarkable bridge, and the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad transformed Wheeling into a transportation hub. Fed by an influx of immigrant labor, the city prospered, adding industrial muscle. But global economic changes brought the machine to a sudden halt.
