Altenheim Retirement Community has long been a part of Wheeling history. Known as Altenheim Home for the Aged, the home was originally located close to the intersection of National Road and Bethany Pike. Anton Reymann, the donor of Altenheim, purchased the beautiful old Mount Belleview summer hotel, had the house and grounds renovated, then gave it to a board of trustees to be used as a home for older women, many of whom were “retired” German domestics who had cared for Wheeling's wealthy. These ladies were offered life care with all of their needs met. The formal opening was held on May 7, 1891.
