This circa 1860s Scale Model Clarington, Ohio wharfboat Model by John Bowman 2011.

Clarington’s Wharf Boat supplied Clarington, the Upper Ohio Valley and Wheeling with much of its daily needs. The wharf boat at Clarington was always filled with butter, milk and eggs from the Sunfish Valley and cheeses from dairy farms in the hills of Belmont and Monroe Counties. This hill area known as Switzerland of Ohio, shipped one hundred thousand pounds of “Switzer” cheeses per year. Clarington shipped sacks of feed and meal, barrels of flour and barrels of apples, produce, sacks filled with potatoes, boxes of fruit, and coops of chickens, hogs, cattle and sheep. The wharf boat received: groceries, hardware, candy, fruit, meat, sugar, barrels and kegs of beer, packages of whiskey, buggies and various lots of household goods. The Wheeling-Clarington-Sun Fish Packet Company and its successors made daily round trips to Wheeling, (fifty-six miles) for seventy-five years from 1846 to 1921.
