The Weirton Millsop Community Center opened in March 1952 and has been faithfully serving the recreation needs of the entire Tri-State Area ever since. Located in the heart of Weirton’s downtown, and in the shadow of ArecelorMittal Steel (formerly National Steel and Weirton Steel), the 86,000-square-foot facility still proudly displays many links to the steel industry heritage that forged it more than 60 years ago. Among these are the large mural commissioned from Martin P. Couse for the grand opening on March 1, 1952 and the City of Weirton Hall of Fame, both located in the building’s Weirton Room.
Several additions and upgrades have been made to WMCC, which was originally built at a cost of $1.4-million, a sum of money that was raised in only 14 days in 1951, consisting almost entirely of donations, some of which were made by Weirton Steel employees. WMCC is a tribute to the city’s spirit of teamwork and dedication.
WMCC has adapted to the changing recreation and health and fitness needs of the community over the decades and offers something everyone. The facility includes an indoor, heated swimming pool; a 9,600-square-foot gymnasium; three racquetball courts; two multi-purpose courts; two cardio training rooms with state-of-the-art treadmills, cross trainers and recumbent bikes; a selectorized weight training room; a free weight training room; and an aerobic room. There are dressing rooms available for men, women and families.
WMCC also has three large meeting rooms that can be rented for any occasion, including the Weirton Room, which features state-of-the-art audio/visual tools, internet capability and a prep kitchen.
The facilities housed inside WMCC are avialable 342 days a year and its hours are wide ranging to fit almost any individual schedule.
WMCC offers a wide range of membership opportunities and programs to fit nearly any budget.

This place is a dump and stinks of foul odors. It was great in it's glory days 50's & 60's. This community center was built on funds extorted from Weirton Steel employees back in the late 40's and early 50's. All Weirton Steel Employees had to donate 1 day of wages over 5 pay periods over three years if they wanted to keep their job. At one time there was a youth center downstairs for dancing and a snack bar but it's long gone and replaced with gymnasium equipment for steroid heads to work out.

I went there to aquire about a gym membership and the heavy set woman named Deb at the front counter said "Yeah you look like you need to work out." I was just going there to become a healthier person and feel good about myself and left feeling awful. All the while she was eating raw hotdogs from the package. The nerve!

I've been coming to the Milsop Community Center since I was a kid. It has changed so much over the years; and yet, it still is the same in many ways. There is something for every and all ages to do here. The center is further used as an emergency shelter for residents, and they have conference rooms available for meetings. I love the fact that this ENTIRE MONTH all Veterans are welcome at the Center FREE when they show their military identification. 🪖 "The Community Center is also currently holding their eighth annual Bob Bush Memorial Clothing Drive through November 12th. Bush, who served in the U.S. Navy during the Vietnam 🇻🇳 War originated the clothing drive as a way to assist local veterans by providing them with warm clothes ahead of the colder, winter months. He passed away in April 2020. The clothing drive he oversaw was named in his memory, with Weirton Parks & Recreation employee Ron Spencer, Army veteran, stepping in to make sure it continues. Those wishing to contribute are asked to bring their donations of new or gently used clothing to the main entrance of the community center, either in boxes 📦 or bags 🎒. In particular, officials note requests for new socks." ©️ The second paragraph contributed to compliments by the Weirton Daily Times Newspaper 📰 dated Thursday, November 3, 2022.

Always great for a comfortable day with the kids especially in winter thanks to the heated pool and sauna! The birthday party I had for my kids this winter was good except the chlorine was extremely over used, it affected some of us before we even got in the pool. As well a water aerobics class for those of older age with extremely loud music started in the middle of the party and took over the entire shallow end. Those in the class were verbally rude and even tried to keep them from holding on to the walls to get to the stairs, children who weren’t strong swimmers... so make sure you ask about the class schedules before booking!

Great place to work out but for a membership for a year is $203 I think it should be a little cheaper I understand for donations but I need find a gym so I'll keep this one in mind
