|Origin of name||Wheeling, West Virginia, from the Wheeling Branch of the B&O Railroad|
Wheeling Street appears in the 1900 Hopkins atlas. It paralleled the Wheeling Branch of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, which ran through Streets Run; today the rail line is the W&P Subdivision of the Allegheny Valley Railroad. Presumably this is the origin of the street name. Bob Regan includes "Wheeling" in a list of streets named for cities, meaning Wheeling, West Virginia, the original terminus of the Wheeling Branch.
