  • Born & raised in Morgantown. When I think of home I think of the late 1940's ,the 1950's & the 1960's. These were my childhood years, greatest years of my life. I still can fill the atmosphere & excitement of going to town on Saturday ,the friends gather @ Murrphy's 5 & dime store on High St. to talk & catch up on all the famly news. If it was miners payday I got to go to the Morgan theater to see a show. For just a Quater You got into the movies, a box of popcorn & coke. The May 30th boat races on the Mon. Then there was the Grandville Carnival week, Can't forget the Laborday Parade just before going back to school in the fall. Now it's Thanksgiving, the Christmas parade. This was the time of the year that Morgantown really came to life. There was the shopping in the snow, The Salvation Army ringing the bells, you knew it was Christmas again. The WVU football & basketball Sam Huff & Jerry "Cabincreek" West I like to refer to my memories of Morgantown as a! Norman Rockwell painting of my mine.

  • I graduated from MHS and WVU and live and work in Chicago with my husband Brian. Chicago is a great city to live in, but boy do we miss Morgatown. We get so excited when the WVU games are on TV, or we here something about Don Knotts. I really miss how quiet it is in the summer time, looking at the stars and climbing the hills. Illinois is too flat for me, I need hills! We'll come back again, hopefully sooner then later. The website is great, keep adding new pics and info. I look at the Dominion Post online every week.
