  • I come to Motown every year and i think its an awesome place.
  • I have really enjoyed your web page. It feels like I've been there, and I'm proud that my Great Grandfather James Donaldson Guseman came from there. His father Godfrey and grandfather Joseph were also from there, as well as the Donaldsons,McShanes, and Carrolls. Being able to see where they lived was great.
  • I lived in Columbus, Ohio for 10 years and Morgantown reminds me of Columbus back in the early 80's before to huge growth! It seems to me Morgantown is ready to explode with a similar growth. I visit Morgantown once a month for schooling and always enjoy the time there.
