WHEELING, W.Va. — A special celebration is planned Wednesday in North Wheeling to mark the 200th anniversary of the National Road’s arrival in the city.
The Victorian Old Town Association is organizing the free festivities. The public event starts at 6 p.m. and will finish by 7:30 p.m.
Chuck Wood, a VOTA member, said the association will hold a small re-enactment ceremony at Seventh and Main streets, where the road came down the steep hill and entered the city on Aug. 1, 1818.
