Wheeling, WV: A city on the rise again?
Wheeling was once a city rivaling Pittsburgh, PA in size and scope when both cities boomed economically. After decades of economic retreat Wheeling and the surrounding area are eager for expansion of commerce. Already the home to thriving companies in industries as diverse as banking, industrials, and gaming, Wheeling enters the internet age as home to search engine marketing specialists, Direct Online Marketing.
Origins of The McClain Building
Of the many office buildings in Wheeling, the McClain Building stands out due to its rich history and unique structure. It consists of two separate buildings that have since been combined. The McClain Building is named after Thomas Baird McClain and his brothers, who held prominent the business interests of Wheeling in the late 19th and early 20th Centuries. The McClain family engaged in the printing business, pharmaceuticals, and the dental and surgical industry. In 1893, The McClain brothers set up an office for the McClain Dental and Surgical Depot in the original McClain Building, whose exact date of erection in the 19th Century is unknown. The other building, first referred to as the Hogue Building, was built in the 1920s. As you exit the elevators on the second floor where Direct Online Marketing is located, you can see where the buildings were joined by looking at the floor.
Located at 40 Twelfth Street, the building is within a short distance of both the WesBanco Arena, home of the Wheeling Nailers of the East Coast Hockey League, and Capitol City Music Hall. The McClain Building sits only a block and a half from the Ohio River and one block from the Federal Court House.
