Rebuilding Fort Henry great idea for Wheeling

I totally agree with the recent comments in the piece by Joe Roxby about rebuilding Fort Henry. What a great thought – although, it is by no means a new idea!

People go to Williamsburg for the Colonial period, Gettysburg for the Civil War. Wheeling has it all!

With the Heritage Port and all the walking trails, a person could literally travel through time from Fort Henry to Independence Hall and into the Victorian era with all the beautiful homes of that period that are around the city.

Look at all that goes on at Fort Steuben just up the river. Let’s capitalize on what we have while preserving history for future generations.
