Spotlight on HCAP: Wetzel County Museum


Wetzel County is located in northwestern West Virginia, considered part of the northern panhandle that separates Ohio from Pennsylvania, about 100 miles southwest of Pittsburgh. It is divided by the Mason-Dixon Line. Wetzel County was carved out of adjacent Tyler County on January 10, 1846, and is named in honor of Lewis Wetzel, distinguished frontiersman and Indian scout.
