Holly McCluskey, curator of the Oglebay Mansion Museum, talked about Industrialist Earl W. Oglebay and his lasting impact on the city of Wheeling, West Virginia. The museum is housed in the summer estate of the industrialist, who was born in Wheeling in 1849. At the age of 28, Mr. Oglebay became president of his father’s bank, the National Bank of West Virginia, making him the youngest bank president in the nation. He made much of his fortune in the iron ore industry, and in 1901 he purchased the property which he would eventually call Waddington Farm.
