Things I see, people I meet, along the Mon. We're very involved in cleaning litter off the river, but I'll always try to post something on the magic and beauty of the Monongahela River. Hey, become a "follower."

The Flatboat Project
Hey, I'm really excited about the Flatboat Project, sponsored by the Morgantown Museum Commission. We're going to build a flatboat, a common vessel on the Mon River from the late 1700s through much of the 1800s. It will be at the Ruby Memorial Park in Morgantown, very near where the city's original entrepreneur, Michael Kerns, build boats for pioneers traveling west. The Flatboat Project begins on Saturday, Dec. 15, 2012, with a reception and exhibit at the Morgantown History Museum on Kirk street, 7 p.m. Free and open to the public. Please come.
