Long Description:
The Cathedral Parish School now known as the Wheeling Catholic Elementary was built 1896-97 to serve as an elementary school to serve the St. Joseph Cathedral parish. The red brick three-story structure was built in a Late Gothic Revival style. The building has a central square tower on its facade with the main arched entrance which is surrounded by stone. The school was expanded with a gymnasium in 1939. The school is located on a block with the Catholic high school, the St. Joseph Cathedral and the rectory. Along with being individually listed on the National Register it is also a contributing building in the East Wheeling Historic District.

The building appears to be in good condition and continues to serve as an elementary school.

The school building was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1997.
