Artist's Description

Wheeling West Virginia USA was laid out in 1793, incorporated in 1806, and first chartered as a city in 1836. Tourism is the most important industry in Wheeling. (pop. 34,882; met. area pop. 159,301) It is an industrial city on the Ohio River in northern West Virginia. The City of Wheeling has an area of about 11 square miles (28 square kilometers). It includes Wheeling Island in the Ohio River. Two bridges connect Wheeling Island with the rest of the city, one being The Wheeling Suspension Bridge, which was the first bridge span across the Ohio River and is a registered National Historical Landmark. Wheeling lies near West Virginia’s great coal- and natural-gas-producing region, and these minerals furnish power for many of the city’s industries. Wheeling’s most important products include aluminum, bronze, chemical products, garments, glass, iron and steel, metal stampings, plastics, and tin plate. The city is also a coal shipping center. Many of the old buildings in the city are historical.
