History of the Marland Heights Pool
Marland Heights Park and Margaret Manson Weir Memorial Pool is a historic park and swimming pool located at Weirton, Hancock County, West Virginia. The Park was dedicated in July 1934 and is a contributing site. It has two contributing structures and one building; the Margaret Manson Weir Memorial Pool, a large wood timber and stone picnic shelter, and a tool shed. The ovoid-shaped pool was built in 1934, with funds from the David Weir Estate and maintenance support from the Weirton Steel Corporation. The main entrance to the pool features Art Deco style design features. The Margaret Manson Weir Memorial Pool was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1993.
Today, the pool is managed by the Marland Heights Community Association, who have signed a lease with the city of Weirton to secure the property. The Marland Heights Community Association is working hard to secure support to reopen the pool in 2016.
