What people are saying about Morgantown…

  • Excellent website! I lived in Morgantown while attending to the Intensive English Program at WVU, and had a great time there. What a piece of heaven you have!
  • My Dad, A. Morse Gilbert was an administrator at the WV University Hospital in the early 1960`s. I was born there in 1963. In 1966, we moved to Florida. I never got used to it. Morgantown is still my hometown, even though I haven`t been back for 40 years! Thanks for the opportunity to visit!
  • I'm about to leave Morgantown after having spent three and a half month in different fields of the community as part of CIP West-Virginia. I do not want to tell a long story about my most enjoyable experiences but I would like to say that I met the most open and friendly people here. Good luck to every citizen of Morgantown and Monongalia County.
  • Nice to see pictures and read information about home.
  • I grew up on DesMoines Ave. in Woodburn. I went to Woodburn Elem., Morgantown Jr High(down town), and I graduated from MHS in 1955. My father worked for Mon Power for 31 years. He installed the first lights at Pony Lewis Field, and maintained them until his death in 1955. I spent 1955-57 in the army, and left WV in 1959. I try to come back as often as I can. You can take the boy out of the hills, But you cannot take the hills out of the man. Morgantown was a great place to grow up, and the 40's and 50's was a great time to live in Morgantown. I can't emagine anyone having a better childhood than I and my friends and classmates had growing up in Morgantown. I will always be a Mountaineer, and especially a Woodburn boy from Morgantown. This is a great web site, congratulations.
  • I come to Motown every year and i think its an awesome place.
