A Palatial Mansion Was Built And Left To Decay In The Middle Of One Of West Virginia’s Largest Cities

According to the dictionary, the word “palace” has two meanings. Formally, it means “the official residence of a sovereign, archbishop, bishop, or other exalted person.” Informally, it means “a large, splendid house.” Both definitions come pretty close to describing what could have been for one of West Virginia’s iconic abandoned places, located in Wheeling.
