Victoria Theatre

1228 Market St.
Wheeling, WV
Ohio County

First opening its doors in 1904, the Victoria is the oldest operating theater in West Virginia. Located in the historic central business district of Wheeling, the Victoria is a 720 seat, Victorian style theater with many Beaux-Arts design influences. In 1934, the Victoria Theater served for a short period as home to the “WWVA Jamboree” radio show. Today, the Victoria Theater hosts the regular Victoria Jamboree – a variety show including an Elvis impersonator, country, bluegrass, rock, and gospel music. (Listed NRHP 1979)
