A "Workingman's Stogie"

Operating in Wheeling for over 161 years, Marsh Wheeling Stogies was the oldest continuous cigar manufacturing operation in the United States. Reflecting Wheeling's early pioneer heritage and spirit, these stogies and their boxes became a symbol of blue-collar pride. Rather than compete with high-end cigar manufacturers, the company's founder Mifflin Marsh took pride in making a "workingman's stogie."
