What people are saying about Morgantown…

  • Beautiful city!
  • My family and I had the pleasure to visit your beautiful town in November 2000. We spent 2 weeks visiting Morgantown and surrounding areas. I have a cousin that lives in Morgantown, her and I had corresponded since we were 15 years old but until last year had never met. It was a fantastic experience.
  • 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.
  • I really enjoy the website. I moved away from Morgantown 6 years ago and it is nice to see what is going on.
  • 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.
  • Nice site! It was nice seeing Morgantown again. I picked ite address up from the site.
