  • I was born in Morgantown in 1943. I have two sisters and one brother in Morgantown.I try to visit at least once per year.
  • As someone who grew up in Morgantown, it's always a great to visit your site and see how the "town" is doing.. My achievements today are directly related to the qualities of life your/our town provided so many years ago...
  • I went to high school in Kingwood, and lived in Morgantown from 1985-1989 (South Park, Sunnyside, and Brookhaven), while attending WVU. I loved it, and hated it (especially the LACK OF PARKING!). I miss it terribly, and come home about once or twice a year. I check the Dominion Post Website almost every day, and just started checking out this one. I miss Cooper's Rocks, the river, the hills, and the beautiful leaves in the fall, driving up Rt 7 and Decker's Creek, and the excitement of WVU football games (GO Mountaineers!). I may live in the midwest, but I still bleed Blue and Gold, and I miss my home among the hills!
  • Being a former Morgantownonian, it`s nice to see a great site up and running!
  • Just wanted to say my mother Emily Poe moved to WV from Maryland five years ago and died in Morgantown WV Feb 2000. In Loving Memory of my Mother Emily Mae POE who lived in Morgantown, WV.

And that it was living in Morgantown that made you Happy.Rest in peace my Dear Mother I will always love you. You're Daughter Sheila
