Brooke County Museum

600 Main Street
Wellsburg, WV 26070


The Brooke County Museum strives to preserve and present Brooke County from 1797 to the present. Artifacts representing industry, early education and pioneer life are displayed in a manner to allow a "step back in time". The Museum is housed in an original 1794 Tavern and Inn located beside the old Wellsburg Wharf. The Inn provided lodging for many early riverboat travelers.

"Queens" visit here -- that is the DELTA QUEEN, the MISSISSIPPI QUEEN, and the AMERICAN QUEEN. All three dock at the wharf when they are in the area.

Visit the past and view artifacts that local ancestors used in every day life.

Hours:  April - October, Friday and Sunday, 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. or by appointment. Admission fee is by donation.

Directions:  The museum is located 16 miles north of Wheeling. From Route 2, turn west onto 8th Street, proceed for two blocks, then turn south on Main Street.
