THE WHEELING FAMILY TREE
From the earliest settlers to the Gilded Age industrialists and beyond, Wheeling is a city built by pioneering families. While the earliest among us settled land, subsequent generations of newcomers fought on battlefields for the country, forged new enterprises, and reinvented the Wheeling brand name. INWheeling follows the Wheeling family tree, from the deepest roots of the earliest days to the branches of the early 20th century, with this unprecedented biographical compilation.
WHAT'S IN A NAME?
All of us have asked at one time or another where a street name comes from, or for whom our neighborhood or town is named. Wheeling’s patchwork of surnames that designate everything from parks to halls serves as a permanent reminder of our ancestors who built the city from the river up. These names act as a genetic code of the city. INWheeling attempts to unravel this code and give life to the characters whose family names populate our everyday existence.
THANKSGIVING IS FAMILY
Wheeling is one of those cities that people come home to for Thanksgiving. While the big cities clear out, and airports and roads load up with people coming back home, cities like Wheeling wait and prepare for sons and daughters to reunite around the family table for that most special meal of all
– Thanksgiving. INWheeling offers tantalizing takes on a traditional meal, which will help you make your Thanksgiving Day a very special one.
