Monongalia and Preston

Morgantown has been named one of the 2019 ‘Top 100 Best Places to Live’ by Livability.com 

More than 1,000 Millenials across the country were surveyed to determine what matters most when making relocation decision. 

The top responses were affordability and job opportunities. 

One of the main amenities that draws individuals is the art scene, which includes the Metropolitan Theater in downtown Morgantown.

“The role that the Met Theater plays in livability in Morgantown is that it creates a desired community. People will select their jobs, often by where they live and the desire to have a full life recreation, culture, entertainment, and education,” said Joe Kaehler, with the Metropolitan Theater. 

Morgantown outpaced more than 1,000 cities, with populations between 1,000 and 20,000.
