|Glessner Covered Bridge|
The construction of the Baltimore and Ohio railway, America's first rail system began in Baltimore in 1828 and reached Wheeling, VA (West Virginia did not exist yet) in 1852. Eleven tunnels and 113 bridges had to be constructed. The railroads further expedited the transport of timber, coal, agricultural goods and produce, and increased the influx of people to western frontiers.

"[Jesus] said to them, 'Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men'"
