The Upper Ohio Valley Historical Review

The Upper Ohio Valley Historical Review was first published in October 1968. Though its first issues were intermittent, it has become a treasured publication and valuable tool for studying and learning about our geographic area. In its forty-two years of publication, there have been over one-hundred authors who wrote more than one-hundred and fifty articles.

 

Wheeling Heritage is continuing the tradition first started by the Wheeling Area Historical Society in 1968, through editing and publishing the Review — the only one of its kind in the northern panhandle of West Virginia that is dedicated solely to local history topics.

 

For the first time, past issues of the Review are available online. The years ranging from 1968-1999 are now available for use below. They are arranged by subjects. Just click on the headings to see the articles that have been written in the past issues.
