The Oglebay neighborhood consists of the properties located around Oglebay Park, a large 2,000-acre public park. Most of the land was once part of industrialist Earl W. Oglebay’s summer estate that was gifted to the people of Wheeling for public recreation. With a little bit more of a rural feel, the houses tend to be spaced further apart with significant yards or land. There are a few apartment buildings to choose from as well.
There is plenty of recreation to choose from at Oglebay Park, including hiking, walking, golf, skiing, fishing, tennis, a zoo, and more. The park also includes gardens and tour options through the Mansion and Glass Museums. There are a few restaurants and shops, but most amenities are located a short 10-15 minute drive away, in another suburb or Downtown Wheeling.
