Wheeling's History

In the early 1800s, the area now known as Wheeling was rich with fertile soil. Settlers took advantage of the crop production and when transportation networks began moving into the area, farmers began exporting their crops. Around this time, Wheeling became a stop for those traveling to Chicago due to the location of the Overland Trail, which is now known as Milwaukee Avenue. Taverns, eateries, and inns began establishing themselves to accommodate the needs of those visitors. After being incorporated in 1894, the city saw rapid growth due to the expansion of Metro Chicago.
