Range History

The Lewis Wetzel Rifle & Pistol Club was started in the 1940's by sportsman of the Wheeling, West Virginia area who were interested in the shooting sports as
well as big and small game hunting. The club was named after the famed frontiersman Lewis Wetzel, an expert marksman with a flintlock rifle, who roamed the hills of the Wheeling area in search of hostile Indians in the late 1700's. His entire family had been massacred by Indians when he was very young and because of this, he dedicated his life to defending the settlers of what was then the frontier of the new nation, America.

Anyone interested in a more complete history of the Wheeling area during that time, would find interesting reading in some of the works of famed author Zane Grey and Present day Club member Joseph Roxby.

The club makes an attempt to cater to the needs of all present day shooting sportsmen, woman, and enthusiasts. We welcomes input and suggestions from members of the club and law abiding firearms owner from the surrounding area.
