When I go for a run, I love to look around and take in the scenery. One of my new favorite places is downtown Wheeling, W.Va. 

A lot of the old architecture here has intricate details: flowers hidden in walls, stucco made to look like grape vines. Much of these beauties are  being torn down after sitting empty for decades.

They just don’t make them like they use to.


The old Peking Garden building is slated for demolition by the city of Wheeling. It is among my favorites.

The Stone Center was once a department store. Now it houses apartments and offices.

The Capitol Theatre has a lot of details that are typical of many of the buildings in downtown Wheeling.
