Mozart exists right on the southern edge of Ohio County, on the hills overlooking South Wheeling. The neighborhood was started when Henry Schmulbach, the famous brewer in South Wheeling, decided to open a park in 1893 for the significant German-American population in the area. By the early 1900s, the park land was turned into a real estate development.
Mozart is mostly made up of residences but also has several businesses, a park, and a church. Mozart is an unincorporated community, but it does have its own volunteer fire department. The neighborhood is within a few minutes’ drive from major highways, encouraging an easy commute and access to other parts of Wheeling.
