  • 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!!
  • I currently live in Lakeland, Florida. I left Morgantown in February 2004. I was born and raise in Morgantown. It is a wonderful place to raise a family. Although I miss Morgantown dearly, my home is in Florida now. I am a Floridian by residence and will always be a MOUNTAINEER at heart!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
