  • Hi, from a former Mo'town resident... I kinda miss my small hilly town....
  • It`s really nice. I enjoyed looking at the pictures.
  • I was born in Morgantown in 1962, lived there until 1989 when I moved to Lakeland, FL. I love the warm weather here but sometimes miss the snow and the mountains.
  • Even though I have been gone over a year, I still consider Morgantown and West Virginia my home. I just love coming down Cheat Mountain and knowing that I will soon be in a nice, comfortable place. You can`t truly appreciate what a good feeling that is until you relocate to a big city with crime, and traffic, etc. If I could move my company here I would be back in a heartbeat!
  • Great site, and a beautful city.
