Wheeling, Ohio County, West Virginia
This historic ghost sign for a former dry cleaning business is located in downtown Wheeling, West Virginia. As the population in Wheeling declined from over 60,000 at its peak in 1930 to under 30,000 today, the fortunes of the downtown business district have faded as well. Everywhere you turn there is another closed business or vacant building. With the efforts of local officials there are signs of recovery for the once vibrant city and hopefully that trend will continue.
