Main Street Morgantown was in attendance this past Sunday, October 16 at the Capitol complex in Charleston to receive a recognition award for historic preservation for the Downtown Morgantown Historic District. The event, “Our Legacy, Our Future,” was produced by the WV Division of Culture and History – State Historic Preservation Office in celebration of the fiftieth anniversary of the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966. Because historic preservation is part of the Main Street Morgantown mission, we were presented with this historic preservation recognition award.
From the event program: “Representing a significant period from 1795-1945, this commercial district has resources related to the development of Morgantown from an agricultural community to a thriving city. District boundaries closely follow the original grid of Morgantown as laid out by Zackquill Morgan, founder of the town. This district includes a collection of architectural styles including Romanesque Revival, Italianate, Gothic Revival, Classical Revival and Federal.”
