Wellsville changed very little visually during the twentieth century; the borough's appearance has remained that of a nineteenth-century community, complete with brick sidewalks and Gothic Revival and Greek Revival houses.
Because of its unusually high quality of preservation, nearly all of the community was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1977 as the "Wellsville Historic District". Among the district's 48 contributing properties are an 1850s Methodist church, a small group of nineteenth-century commercial buildings, and the Wellsville House, an 1870s structure that has been used as a factory, museum, and restaurant.
