  • Hi there Motown!! I lived in Morgantown for quite a few years, and sadly, had to move in 1979, but still miss the place a lot. I have great memories of Suncrest Jr. High, the CAC, MHS, Riding the PRT and living in North Hills on Cherry Lane. I would love to hear from any of my old friends who may be out there!!! Love to hear from you!!

  • Great Site! I just love Barney Fife! He is my favorite actor on Andy Griffith. I love his sense of humor and how well he performs. Keep up the good work on the site!
  • While I have no connections to WV, I have been to Morgantown many times on our way out to Wetzel County on the Ohio River. It is a great place to shop and get something to eat. We almost always pick up groceries there, and stop for gas. It's a great place to spend some time off the interstates. And, I love the little yellow cars on the monorail! Must be a great way to get around campus. Only noticed recently that Don Knotts was from Morgantown and there is a street named after him. Nice to know! Looks like a really nice place to live...
