Welcome to Centre Market

There was once a time when every city had a market house.  Bustling with activity and color, they were rich community places, central to the urban life of the late nineteenth century.  Today, Centre Wheeling's two Market Houses remain such places.

 

Built in 1853, the Upper Market House is the only cast iron columned market house in the country.  The building has 54 hollow Roman Doric columns cast in Wheeling , Virginia .  Every other column innovatively acted as a downspout for the roof The building was constructed as an open market, but was enclosed in 1886.  This market house has been in continuous operation since the mid-nineteenth century.


The Lower Market House, built in 1890, is a Romanesque brick structure.  The central brick arches are adorned with four carved, round, concave, stone medallions.  Beaded mouldings contain a ram head, a bull head, a stallion head and a boar head, carved in full relief.

Flanking the two Market Houses are almost uninterrupted sequences of historic commercial buildings.  Many of these, along with the Market itself are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

An array of small shops that carry everything from hand made jewelry, home accents, handcrafts, to antiques and collectibles, makes Centre Market a shoppers paradise.

Wheeling Independence Hall

Nearly six years before President Lincoln signed the proclamation making West Virginia the 35th State in the Union, construction had begun on the Wheeling Custom House, headquarters for federal offices for the Western District of Virginia. Its completion, coinciding with the beginning of the Civil War, provided a facility for heated political discussions and constitutional conventions that led to eventual statehood for West Virginia in 1863. Here, issues dividing many Virginians - slavery being one of many - were debated, compromised and shaped into the skeleton of statehood. Serving as the Restored Government of Virginia (aligned with the Union) from 1861-1863, it is appropriately known today as West Virginia Independence Hall.

Pittsburgh Museums

Phipps Conservatory:  Beautiful plants.  When you want summer in the middle of the winter this is the place to go.

 

Carnegie Science Center  The Science Center is an interactive family science exploration experience.  Great for the whole family you can spend the whole day here.  The Science Center is located on the North Shore of Pittsburgh next to Heinz Field.

From rock groups to Campbell’s soup, from T. rex to submarine decks—the four Carnegie Museums are home to hundreds of thousands of objects, including some of the world’s great art and the remains of the Earth’s largest prehistoric creatures. They’re home, too, to thousands of exhibition spaces that make us wonder—about our world, the Universe, the past, and the future. Most importantly, they’re the participants and the hosts of daily exploration—onsite, out in the community, and around the world. They are Carnegie Museum of Art, Carnegie Museum of Natural History, Carnegie Science Center, and The Andy Warhol MuseumMore on Andy Warhol
