Usage examples of "weirton".
John Vujnovic, an attorney from Weirton, West Virginia, said, describing his experience on the evening of October 7, 1966.
Vujnovic was driving south on State Route 66 from Chester, West Virginia, to Weirton in the northernmost tip of the state.
In West Virginia, he was damaged by the failure of Weirton Steel, an employee-owned company.
The evidence indicated that the company had failed for other reasons, but the Weirton workers thought otherwise and Al paid the price.
On the third day, we worked our way out of western Pennsylvania and into West Virginia, where we toured Weirton Steel, a large integrated producer that the employees had bought from its former owner and kept running.
