Welcome to the Ohio County Assessor's Web Site!
Wheeling and Ohio County was considered the birthplace of West Virginia. Several
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 office for the Western District of Virginia, its completion, coinciding
with the beginning of the Civil War, proved a facility for heated political discussions
and constitutional conventions that led to eventual statehood for Wes Virginia in
1863. Here, issues dividing may Virginians were debated, compromised and shaped
into the skeleton of statehood. Serving as the Restored Government of Virginia from
1861 – 1863, it is appropriately known today as West Virginia Independence Hall.
