Special Gifts

"My mother’s favorite pastime was walking at Oglebay, which she did almost every day. It is appropriate that income from the Wheeler Cottage will go to future upkeep and maintenance of the Susan Wheeler Trail System" – Bruce Wheeler, son, at the dedication of the Susan Wheeler Estate House (pictured above)

With millions of annual visitors, thousands of educational programs, over 100 buildings and historic structures, dozens of recreational facilities (including swimming pools, tennis courts, athletic fields, golf courses, ice rinks, and ski slopes), and miles of roads and trails, there is a need to continue the tradition of significant gifts for development, renovation, endowment, and support.

Opportunities exist to permanently link a donor’s family name or honored name with the proud tradition and quality of excellence which have been synonymous with Oglebay and Wheeling Park.

Named Endowment Funds are popular ways both through significant annual gifts and bequests to ensure that popular and historic park facilities remain for future generations.
