Description: The new Fall 2019 issue of GOLDENSEAL is dedicated entirely to the 250th anniversary of the founding of Wheeling, twice the capital of West Virginia. Rebekah Karelis traces the last 250 years of Wheeling history; Seán P. Duffy looks at the city’s history of race relations; Sue-Beth Warren examines the restoration of West Virginia Independence Hall, our state’s birthplace; GOLDENSEAL editor Stan Bumgardner writes about Wheeling’s ethnic food heritage and Mount de Chantal Visitation Academy, a prominent Catholic school for 160 years; Barb Howe tells of the incomparable Sister Joanne Gonter, a longtime teacher at Mount de Chantal; Steve Brightwell takes readers on a photographic tour of Wheeling; Carl E. Feather relates the life of Wheeling podiatrist Dr. Roy Harmon Jr. and his wife, Mary Ellen; Roy’s son Dave Harmon recounts some great times riding in his father’s smoky, rumbling Studebaker; Mark Swiger details a history of Wheeling Steel (later Wheeling-Pitt Steel) and how Mike Fahey climbed the corporate ladder from a laborer to management; and professional singer Mollie O’Brien remembers the many great musical times she experienced in her hometown. In addition, state folklorist Emily Hilliard profiles Carol Dougherty and Our Lady of Lebanon church and school, and Carl E. Feather visits with three intrepid preservationists—Jeanne Finstein, Hydie Friend, and Margaret Brennan—who, along with many who laid the groundwork, have helped revitalize the city by restoring and reusing historic structures.
