Morgantown Community • Morgantown, WV

Although COVID has limited our outreach efforts, we’re doing what we can safely and look forward to when we can pick up full steam where we left off.

About Us:
This West Virginia community is a forty-five minute drive from our Pennsylvania-based New Meadow Run and Spring Valley communities. Our settlement is made up of young families and singles. Among other activities, we support Bruderhof members seeking treatment at the university hospital, which is used frequently by our Pennsylvania members.

Morgantown is a diverse college town of about thirty thousand people that doubles in population when school is in session. Our property is a little oasis close to the Health Sciences Campus. We have two houses and a large backyard where we garden, play cornhole, and have barbecues with friends and neighbors. Just a two-minute walk away is public transportation, the university hospital, and WVU’s football stadium, which seats sixty thousand.

Connecting with Neighbors:
We are involved in various student groups at the university, and we volunteer at the hospital, Chestnut Mountain Ranch and other local events. We participate in Bible studies and community events sponsored by other religious organizations in the area. We also host events at our property that are open to the public, such as our neighborhood barbecues and Christmas caroling.

Point of Interest:
We make the best pepperoni rolls in town! And don’t even get us started on our venison paprikash.

A resident describes life at the Morgantown Bruderhof house:

Anetta Shirky Hi, I’m Anetta and I’ve lived at the Morgantown House, a small intentional community in Morgantown, West Virginia, for five years. As any Mountaineer will tell you, this place quickly becomes home. I’m in an elementary and special education program at West Virginia University, which means I teach kindergarteners about butterflies, high school juniors about functions of equations, and everything in-between. In between, I love hiking, reading something that isn't assigned, and cheering on Mountaineer basketball.
