Mission & Idenity Lantz Farm


A gift to Wheeling Jesuit University from descendants of the Lantz family who bought the property in 1826, Lantz Farm, located in Jacksonburg, WV, is a retreat center owned by Wheeling Jesuit University with a wildlife preserve managed by WV Department of Natural Resources. The property consists of over 170 acres of rolling hills, woods and prairies, ponds and streams, and includes a farmhouse and barn-dormitory with full kitchen and beds for over 30.

The farm is available for retreats and other gatherings. WJU administers Lantz Farm through Campus Ministry in the Office of Mission and Ministry, in conjunction with the President's Office, Conference Services, and Physical Plant. Call 304-243-2385 for more information.
