March 2nd: Jeanne Finstein and Judi Hendrickson will present, "Talk of the Town: Local Scandals That Made the News".
Murder and mayhem, embezzlement and insanity … these stories give a fascinating glimpse of Wheeling area history, featuring names
such as Schenk, Lias, Swint, and Krishna. The names are real; the stories are true, and they were certainly the talk of the town.
Judi Hendrickson and Jeanne Finstein are local historians who enjoy discovering and sharing interesting pieces of the past, particularly Wheeling history. They are the authors of a book on local history, “Walking Pleasant Valley,” and are long-time, active members of the historic preservation organization, Friends of Wheeling.
