Morgantown, West Virginia

Situated along the banks of the Monongahela River, Morgantown is the largest city in the north central part of West Virginia. The city serves as the county seat of Monongalia County and has been recognized as one of the best small cities in the United States. World-class healthcare, recreation, education, and art facilities complement the city’s dynamic business community. Monongalia County was the only north central county to realize population growth for the last 20 years, and it has been one of the fastest growing counties in West Virginia during the 1990s. Morgantown is best known as the home of West Virginia University and the Morgantown Personal Rapid Transit system.

Morgantown joined the newly created state of West Virginia on June 20, 1863, through the reorganized government of Virginia. The city changed very little until the arrival of the railroad in 1886 and gas and oil production began nearby a few years later. Industries sprang up in the outlying areas and Morgantown experienced an economic and population boom. Today, Morgantown relies heavily on the Monongahela River for shipping coal and other products. Some of the top employers in and around Morgantown include the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), Mylan Pharmaceuticals, and West Virginia University. Downtown Morgantown is a blend of small retail businesses, professional services, restaurants, and residential units. Most buildings have been preserved and accurately restored since the turn-of-the-century. As the city continues to grow, the historic downtown remains the focal point of the city and county.

Morgantown, West Virginia’s history of industry and historic preservation, make asbestos exposure a source of concern for workers, who may be at risk for mesothelioma, an asbestos-related cancer. If you or a loved one were exposed to asbestos in Morgantown and have been diagnosed with mesothelioma, you should also consider contacting an asbestos law firm.
