We'll travel to Wheeling and have lunch together at a delicious lunch buffet. After lunch, our first stop is the Oglebay Glass Museum where we will see the largest piece of cut lead crystal ever made — The Sweeney Punch Bowl. Standing five feet tall and weighing 225 pounds, this remarkable piece of Victorian artistry is view world- renowned.
View over 3,000 pieces of Wheeling glass made from 1829-1939 including cut lead crystal, Victorian art glass, peachblow glass, pattern and depression glass, Northwood’s carnival glass, and many other glass examples showcasing Ohio Valley history. Experience live glass-working demonstrations as artisans create one-of-a-kind artwork.
Our next stop will be The Oglebay Mansion which is the elegant estate of Cleveland industrialist Earl W. Oglebay, who purchased the mansion and surrounding acres in 1900 to serve as a summer home. Upon his death in 1926, the millionaire willed his spectacular country estate to the City of Wheeling.
In this expansive estate, we will explore 13 period rooms focusing on Wheeling’s earliest settlement through the opulent Edwardian era, plus the Wymer General Store and Sinclair Pharmacy collections.
We'll also take in the Hilltop Shops and Gardens and get an exclusive "Behind the Scenes Tour" and see how all of the "lighting magic" happens!
For the grand finale, you’ll be captivated by the Festival of Lights' six-mile tour boasting 90 light displays — all viewed from the comfort of our bus!
This spectacular illuminated display features favorites including animated Snowflake and Rainbow Tunnels, Dinosaurs, Cinderella, the larger-than-life Polyhedron Star, Snoopy and Friends, and Willard the Snowman, who is named for the TV weatherman Willard Scott who joined in the festivities in 1986.
