Design Services

Through Main Street West Virginia, Wheeling Heritage can provide design assistance services to downtown businesses. These services are provided at no cost on a first-come, first-serve basis. The business must be located in the Wheeling Main Street district, which includes 10th Street to 23rd Street, from Main Street to Chapline Street.


Main Street West Virginia offers these services to businesses and property owners to rehabilitate, preserve and revitalize the downtown business district. The organization partners with the State Historic Preservation Office to provide assistance and education on the importance of preserving preserve historic structures.


Services include:

  • Building facade improvement recommendations
  • Maintenance recommendations
  • Historic tax credit advice
  • Sustainable and green building practices advice
  • Information on sources of materials and supplies

The scope of the services includes requests for recommendations on new signage, awnings, window replacements, painting, cleaning, storefront renovations, interpreting standards and codes, and complete building rehabilitation for property owners within the district.
