Warwood is a neighborhood of the city of Wheeling in Ohio County, West Virginia, USA. It lies at an elevation of 673 feet (205 m).[1] It was named for the Warwood Tool Company. Founded by Henry Warwood of Martins Ferry, Ohio in 1854, the company was sold to Daniel L. Heiskell in 1892 and moved to a location four miles north of Wheeling. The Warwood Tool Company remains in existence to this day.[1]

In the first half of the 20th century, a large number of Greek immigrants predominantly from the island of Karpathos settled in Warwood to work in the coal mines.[2][3] Among Warwood natives of Karpathian descent is the noted Greek Orthodox theologian John G. Panagiotou.[4]
