Dining Room

This room was extended by the Sallie and Earl W. Oglebay, likely for their many dinner parties and to include a breakfast area on the far side of the room. The columns were also added by the Oglebay family to repeat those found on the front portico of the house. The table is set with dishes, silverware, and linens owned by Earl and Sallie Oglebay. The paintings in the room depict early citizens of Wheeling. The two on the right side of the picture are Mr. Thomas Paull and Mrs. Ellen White Paull who were also Sallie Howell Oglebay's grandparents.

The chandeliers were made by the Hobbs, Brokunier Co. of Wheeling. They were in operation 1845 - 1893. Most of the furniture is from the Federal period and includes both Hepplewhite and Sheraton styles.
