Wheeling has big-city amenities in a small-town package. Whether you want to enjoy the great outdoors, visit interesting art galleries, experience a performance by the Wheeling Symphony Orchestra, or catch a Broadway show at the historic Capitol Theatre – Wheeling has it all…and then some!
Like most post-industrial cities, Wheeling has experienced decades of population and economic decline but in recent years has worked to reverse these trends. Wheeling is shaping a brighter future through investments in new industries, buildings, and programs designed to improve Wheeling’s economic environment for all our residents.
Perhaps one of the best things about Wheeling is that it’s a place where you can make a difference. Whether you are volunteering for an organization, getting involved in city affairs, or starting something brand new on your own, Wheeling offers the space and support to explore these possibilities. In the years to come, Wheeling will continue to grow by honoring our rich past and striving toward a promising future.
