  • Excellent content; looking forward to attending my first WVA Mountaineer football game!
  • che bella città!
  • I enjoy Morgantown, and wouldn't move for anything.
  • My family and I will be moving to Morgantown around the first of August 2002. I will be there as the new Air Force Reserve Recruiter for your area. We are looking forward to meeting many new and wonderful people. We have heard nothing but good things about your town and are very excited about the move.
  • 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.
  • 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.
