Wake to a hearty breakfast buffet included at the Lodge. Mid-morning you will check out and tour the elegant Mansion Museum. Once the estate of Earl W. Oglebay, he purchased the mansion and surrounding acres to use as a summer home. The mansion features 13 period rooms focusing on Wheeling's earliest settlement through the opulent Edwardian era and contains an impressive collection of American furniture, china, silver, glass pewter, toys and textiles. The Mansion Museum was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1979. Your last stop at Oglebay before departing is at the Glass Museum. The museum features more than 3,000 examples of Wheeling glass made from 1829-1939. One of the highlights of the museum is the largest piece of cut lead crystal ever made, The Sweeney Punch Bowl. Standing five-feet tall and weighing 225 pounds, this crystal treasure is world renowned - a remarkable piece of Victorian artistry. At the conclusion of your visit, you will board the motorcoach for home with meal and rest stops along the way.
