What people are saying about Morgantown…
- I grew up over there in Suncrest and spent many days building treehouses down in the ditches and ravines and now I write books and stories about the times I spent there in Morgantown, it was like no where else I have ever been. I spend my time up on Bell Mountain with my buddy Mark these days having some of that Cheat Wine when I am in town.
- How wonderful to read the comments made about our beautiful little city in the mountains! I am so proud to be a part of this community.
- Morgantown is a great town. I spent 7 years in Mo'town as a student at WVU. I loved being there and did not want to live. My wife and I are both considering returning to WVU; she for a Master's degree and me for a PhD. I look forward to returning to Morgantown on occasion and I really look forward to returning as a student...Let's Goooooooooooooo Mountaineers!!!!!!!!!!!
- Morgantown is a beautiful town. I hope to live in Morgantown someday so I can be close to my brother and his wife. I want to at least retire here, but hopefully I can move before then.
- WVU and Morgantown are the reasons I fell in love with small-town America and small-town newspapers. Thanks for the memories.
- I moved from Morgantown the last time in 77, I am really glad to see the web page set up for Morgantown. I've been wanting to get home for a few day's for a while and time just won't allow it. I enjoyed getting to see some of my hometown sights. and only wish I could once again be able to call Morgantown Home..Maybe someday ?
