Does anyone have any ideas of what we could do to protect this neighborhood? I researched East Wheeling and it is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. However, this doesn't protect the neighborhood from demolition. I wrote to the State of West Virginia Dept. of Historic Preservation (or whatever that department is called) and hopefully I will hear something back from them.

You might try the Preservation Alliance of West Virginia. I doubt that they could do anything directly but they may have some ideas.

If they were 200 miles south Charleston would cough up all the money they needed to preserve Wheeling more than Petra, or the great pyramids.
The mayor of Wheeling is a former state senator and very capable in the "money getting dept".

He has a lovely wife too, but he still is doing a lousy job as mayor. He's in the hip pocket of the city employees who have been taking the town down the tubes for years.
