WHEELING, W.Va.--


Buildings in downtown Wheeling are decorated with love for Valentine’s Day. It’s all part of the “All You Need Is Love,” campaign put on by the Ohio Valley Young Preservationists.

Bekah Karelis, co-founder of the group, says it’s to bring attention to the historic downtown buildings.

“We like to focus on the vacant buildings for sale or rent, but also downtown Wheeling's success stories like the Capitol Theatre and some of the outstanding businesses like Wheeling Coffee and Spice,” said Karelis.

The group works to get area businesses, schools and other organizations to “adopt a building,” for two weeks and decorate it.

The group will remove the decorations during the weekend of Feb. 22-23
