History & History Related Items

Wheeler was named for C.H. Wheeler. He founded the Wheeler Lumber Company in 1910. The success of the town was, in part, due to the railroad. A famous arthritis clinic, Rinehart Arthritis Clinic, was opened in Wheeler in the 1920's. During the 70's, the economy downturned resulting in the closing of many large employers of the area. Because of this, Wheeler's economy suffered greatly. As the 1990's came, residents of the area decided to revitalize their town. The Wheeler Business Association was organized and began to attract new employers and visitors to their town. By 1999, Wheeler has changed once again to a vital, interesting place to live and visit.
