Jefferson School - Abandoned

Jefferson School

The Jefferson School, located at 1401 McColloch Street in Wheeling, West Virginia, was constructed in the late 1800’s. It became the Jefferson Special School in 1959 until 1966, when it was vacated for two years.1 The building was then repurposed for the Civilian Sheltered Work Shop in 1969.



  1. I just wanted to let you know I live right by the place. Dont know much about it, but Ill start looking into it.

  2. Thanks Sarah! I was going through the City Directories at the main downtown library, but ran out of time. The school should have something, but every file I went through in the Vertical Files there had -nothing- listed for Jefferson.
