Additional Description: ❸ The 1940s were the heyday for stogie production in Wheeling. The city's stogie makers produced as many as 3 million stogies per week. In 1941, Marsh made 74 million stogies. Despite their success, Marsh tried to maintain its reputation for inexpensive stogies. On December 21, 2001, the last stogies rolled out of Marsh's Market Street factory. Marsh Stogies are now made in Frankfort, Indiana.
