What people are saying about Morgantown…

  • We are spending the winter in AZ our fourth time here, nice to have the dominion post on line to keep up on the news and read comments on the guestbook. Great site.
  • I'm looking forward to moving to Morgantown the first week of June. I'm very interested in using and helping expand the pedestrian trails. I will be starting work as a civil engineer for DMJM Harris . Keep up the great work! Morgantown has much more to offer as a community than my present town of Cheyenne, Wyoming.
  • Beautiful place, beautiful people! I love it.
  • I lived in Morgantown for 5 months, and it was such a nice city. I miss it a lot now that I've moved back to my home town, but it was too hard being that far away from my family and friends. The only thing I didn't like about Morgantown was driving. I have a really pathetic car, and it hated the hills. But I miss the hills, they're so beautiful. I can't wait to visit again.
  • Thanks for the flashback of memories!!!
  • I am originally from New Jersey, and my wife is from Kentucky, but we have lived in the Morgantown area for over 15 years, first as WVU students, then as working singles, and now as a very happily married couple. We love living here, being active members of Chestnut Ridge Community Church and true Mountaineer fans! We think Morgantown has a lot going for it.
