HISTORY GF WHEELING
Led by Colonel Ebenzer and his brothers, Silas and jonathan,
the first settlement was made at the mouth of Wlieeling Creek in
1769. The early history of this settlement is a story ofbravery and her-
oism in conquering the wilderness and the Indians.
The little community grew until in 1836, just one hundred years ago,
Vifheeling was incorporated as a city. Since then it has grown to be
the second largest city in West Virginia, with a population of approxif
mately 60,000. Its situation on the banks of the Chio River amidst

The building of the National Road in 1818 and the first railroads in
1852 aided greatly in the growth of the city.

schools existed as early as 1808. Notable among these were J

beginnings of the press. The first newspaper, the Wlieeling
Repository, was printed in 1807. In this paper and those later
