Once the home of tinner David Bayha whose business at 1918 Main Street had a distinctive ad in the 1903-04 Wheeling Directory. The house still contains tin accents. Bayha died a tragic death in 1910 when he fell from the roof of the Roney's Point home of Henry Schmulbach. According to a front-page newspaper report, he had been "inspecting the house to ascertain the conditions of the gutters and conductor pipes, with a view of making necessary repairs." This house and others on the block are to be torn down to build a sports complex.
