As one of the oldest neighborhoods in Wheeling, North Wheeling is occasionally referred to as “Victorian Old Town.” The neighborhood draws visitors for its distinct Victorian-era architectural details and is a national historic district. Many of these elaborately detailed houses are still used as residences and apartments, while some have been repurposed into shops or other businesses.
North Wheeling is only a walk or short drive away from Downtown or other suburbs. Most of the neighborhood is residential, but there are several businesses and shops. Anywhere in the neighborhood has very easy access to recreation on the Wheeling Heritage Trail and beautiful views of the Ohio River.
