Wheeling Young Preservationists

Preserving Wheeling’s past builds a better community today

  •   Is the group exclusively for people in their 20s and 30s?

No! Although the group formed in part to provide younger residents of Wheeling with a place to socialize and meet other young people with similar interests, we pride ourselves on being open to everyone who is interested and passionate about preservation, regardless of age.


  •   How do you refer to members?

Not only do we love preservation, but we also love puns. So we call ourselves “WYPersnappers”.


  •  How do I get involved?

Attending our happy hour is a great introduction to our group. The happy hours are announced via social media, be sure to follow us on Facebook! We also host workshops on plaster repair, Mt. Wood Cemetery workdays, and more. If you are interested in participating, please just show up. If you want to learn more about a particular initiative, you can contact us through the website or at our Facebook page.
