In 1914, Harry and his brother, E.L., formed the company Cole Brothers, which was respon- sible for many buildings and roads throughout the region. Harry O.

You can find some great scrolling at Historic Morgantown on Instagram, and learn something about our town's history, too. Each post has three images associated with a house in town and a short description of the home’s history. “I am fascinated by the history of Morgantown, especially my neighborhood, South Park,” says Instagrammer A.J. Hammond. But the history behind the homes is often forgotten, he says. “I hope that, by sharing the stories of these men and women who built the homes throughout Morgantown, we all will see the opportunity we have as a community to celebrate our past and build for the future.” New posts every few days—follow @historicmorgantown on Instagram. written by by pam kasey
