One of the best parts about the Create WV conference was that they took us out and about in Wheeling. In fact, the entire afternoon on the first day was given over to it. We had box lunches in the Capitol Theatre, which is, to put it simply, stunning.
Orrick Global Operations Center. It's the old Wheeling stamp factory, and the process of turning into what it is today--from renovating the building to convincing Orrick that locating their offices here was a great idea--was a massive community effort. The building is seriously amazing.
Centre Market. Didn't venture in.
The Paradox Book Store.
Jamie and I hit the road. We stopped in town to snap more photos, many of which were of doors. They'll be showing up on my other blog in the next week.
We headed directly home, aside from a stop for groceries. It was uneventful until we saw the BEAR. It was a first for both of us, and we reacted accordingly. All in all, a really great trip! I definitely recommend Create WV, Wheeling, and traveling with Jamie.
