Year Enacted: 2005
Description: Throughout the 19th century, Wheeling served as the "Crossroads of America", playing an important role in the settlement of the Nation. Transportation, a major theme, is represented by the National Historic Landmark Wheeling Suspension Bridge, the first bridge to cross the Ohio River. West Virginia Independence Hall, the former U.S. Customs House for this 19th century inland port, was the birthplace of the State of West Virginia during the Civil War. Wheeling was also site of many industries crucial to the Nation's expansion including iron and steel, nails, textiles, boat building, glass manufacturing, and stogie and tobacco manufacturing. Funding was provided to complete the design and construction of streetscape improvements adjacent to Heritage Port, with partners, develop a coordinated heritage tourism strategy, and continue with the research, design and installation of interpretive wayside signs along the Heritage Trail and in historic neighborhoods.
