Our Community

Wheeling, WV

Our community, which includes Wheeling WV and surrounding areas in the Ohio Valley, offers a quality of living equal to many larger cities at a fraction of the cost. The area is abundant in distinguished educational institutions, world-class medical facilities, and ethnic and cultural diversity. We have easy access to the amenities of Pittsburgh, and lower real estate and labor costs than big cities such as Chicago. The low cost of living and short commutes combine to create one of the most livable areas in America. When you add the natural beauty and wonder, breathtaking vistas in both urban and rural communities, an abundance of nightlife, cultural districts, sports and recreation, you can see why our area is such a desirable place to live and work.

Proximity to Pittsburgh

At only 50 miles from Pittsburgh, we have easy access to a wealth of amenities and entertainment. The Pittsburgh Zoo, water parks, and historic Kennywood amusement park are all less than 1 hour away. Major league baseball’s most beautiful ballpark, PNC Park, home of the Pittsburgh Pirates, Sidney Crosby and the NHL’s most explosive young team, the Penguins, and the 6-time Super Bowl champion Steelers are all within a short drive time.
