Notes
Survey number HABS WV-192
Unprocessed field note material exists for this structure (FN-51).
Building/structure dates: 1885 initial construction
Significance: The Klieves brothers, Theodore and Bernard, were partners in the building and construction firm of Klieves, Kraft and Company. Their success and capabilities as builders in Wheeling are apparent from their houses which are adjacent to each other on Chapline Street. These two houses were designed to be identical, although today the Bernard Klieves House alone retains the original decorative detail with which both houses were designed.
