Beautification Continues in Wheeling

Chris Light

A downtown Wheeling beautification effort aims to create a window to history in a space city leaders hope will be a vital part of the future.

The tall, wooden frames that recently appeared along the wall at the north end of the city-owned property represent the start of Reinvent Wheeling's latest project.

The small park is designed to provide a pleasant place for pedestrians walking through downtown.

Inside the frames will be large-scale reproductions of photographs of historic buildings in Wheeling — some still around, and others that are long gone or vacant. They will serve as the focal point of the space, according to Reinvent Wheeling board member Susan Hogan.
