I have driven by this place many times and finally decided to check it out this weekend.

A for sale sign on the front window... this place had lots of holes in the ceiling and floors though so I don't imagine it will be opening for business anytime soon again.

Upstairs was a small living area.

I don't want to know what goes on in here...

And up a second flight of stairs is a cute tiny room with windows all around and access to the windmill.

I was born and raised in Wheeling and used to walk past the Windmill on daily trips from town to Woodsdale, when I was younger of course....lol

The first time I walked past this building, I believe it was a private home, then an Insurance Agency (I think) bought it. I moved from Wheeling sometime around 1995 because of work. I didn't know that they had a bar in there.

Wish I had the money to buy and restore this place. I'd change it back to a residence and live in it. It was beautiful back in the early 80's and 90's. Still looks to be in great shape, except for the interior.
