What people are saying about Morgantown…

  • I did a search on the Joni Mitchell lyric "When morning comes to Morgantown ... " this evening. As a result of the search I came across your site. You probably get a lot of people stop in your town just to see what Joni was singing about. It must be a great place, as it`s a beautiful song, and one that near moves me to tears because of its charming simplicity and superbly selected lyrics.
  • I enjoy Morgantown, and wouldn't move for anything.
  • I grew up in Morgantown and it's nice to see some new pictures since I have not returned since my father passed away.
  • Is always a pleasure to see Morgantown!
  • In 1977, I made a trip to Washington, D.C., and remember going thru Morgantown and absolutely falling in love with it. So picturesque, and friendly. It has grown over the years, I'm sure, but am thinking of making a move in the near future, and Morgantown is certainly still on my list of favorite places.
  • I was surfing the web and found this site. I was born and raised in Fairmont and grew up loving WV! There is no place like home and WV will always be my home!
