Long Description:
"John McLure House, also known as the Hans Phillips House, Lawrence Sands House, and Daniel Zane House, is a historic home located on Wheeling Island at Wheeling, Ohio County, West Virginia. It was built between 1853 and 1856 [when the island was a part of Virginia], and is a three-story, Federal-style brick dwelling. A two-story rear addition was built before 1870. A semi-circular columned portico and two story, projecting side bay, were added in the late 19th century and added Classical Revival elements to the home. A "widow's walk" was placed on the roof sometime after McLure's death. It was the home of Captain John McLure (1816-1893), an American steamboat master, boatbuilder, and capitalist.

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1991. It is located in the Wheeling Island Historic District." - Wikipedia

The house appears to be in excellent restored condition. It is currently used by a couple different businesses.
