The completion of the Wheeling Custom House, headquarters for federal offices for the Western District of Virginia; coincided with the beginning of the Civil War. The heated political discussions and constitutional conventions held here led to West Virginia's eventual statehood in 1863. "Serving as the Restored Government of Virginia (aligned with the Union) from 1861-1863, it is appropriately known today as West Virginia Independence Hall." The restored West Virginia Independence Hall is listed as a site visit on The Civil War Discovery Trail.
