Notes
Survey number HABS WV-185
Unprocessed field note material exists for this structure (FN-58).
Building/structure dates: 1885 initial construction
Significance: This 1885 dry goods store has a long history of mercantile activity in the Centre Market area of Wheeling. The Market Street facade reveals a sharp distinction between the commercial and residential functions of the building. The first floor facade has little relieving design while the second floor facade is replete with elaborate decorative detail. The many years of continuous mercantile activity in the Reed Building have proven that a building's facade is its own best advertisement.
