What Bert Has To Say About Wheeling Metro Area

Once a gateway for travelers coming west across the National Road, Wheeling remains a central point on transportation networks with good access to the Northeast and Midwest. The metro area includes Belmont County with Martins Ferry and a few other small towns in southeastern Ohio. The main industries are steel and metalworking (Wheeling-Pittsburgh Steel employs over 4,000 people). The city has a well-preserved older section downtown and a few arts and entertainment amenities, including a small but energetic symphony and two minor league sports teams.
