Wheeling Icon Comes Back to Life For Another Holiday Season


An old Wheeling icon has come back to life for another holiday season in the Centre Market. 
Alice the Talking Christmas tree is remembered fondly by many for standing and talking in the LS Good’s department store in downtown Wheeling years ago.
She has since been restored by the Coleman family, and greets everyone who walks by.
Joe Coleman keeps the tree throughout the year, and says seeing the tree come back to life brought back many old memories.
It’s just exciting to have it here,” he said. “You know part of downtown Wheeling is now part of Centre Wheeling which is great. The Goods family was really a great family,so just an honor to have it down here with us.”
This weekend is the last chance to catch Alice until next holiday season. 
There is a sign next to her explaining which times she is set to come to life.
