Abstract: Let $ \{ {X_t}(\omega )\} $ represent a version of the Wiener process having almost surely continuous sample paths on $ ( - \infty ,\infty )$ that vanish at zero. We present a theorem concerning the local nature of the sample paths. Almost surely the local behavior at each t is of one of seven varieties thus inducing a partition of $ ( - \infty ,\infty )$ into seven disjoint Borel sets of the second class. The process $ \{ {X_t}(\omega )\} $ can be modified so that almost surely the sample paths are everywhere locally recurrent.
