WELCOME TO MORGAN COUNTY Just a 90-minute drive from Washington, D.C., and Baltimore, Morgan County is nestled between Interstate Highways 70, 81 and 68. Two thirds of America's retail customers and industrial suppliers are located within 500 miles of Morgan County.

Morgan County offers far more than a superb location. A skilled, low-cost work force is anxious to serve your needs. Allegheny Power Company offers power at comparatively low rates. Verizon and Frontier Phone Service has provided us with a state-of-the-art communications infrastructure, of particular value for back-office operations. We have a site waiting for you, complete with water, sewer and streets. It's along a major highway (U. S. 522), minutes from our web of Interstates. And West Virginia provides a superior package of financial incentives and worker training programs. As an added bonus, you'll find that Morgan County combines small town sensibilities with big city opportunities.

Morgan County Economic Development Authority (MCEDA) President, Beth Curtin, recently announced the hiring of Terri Burhans for the position of EDA Director.   

Curtin described an extensive search process that resulted in more than a dozen applications of which five were interviewed.  "We were impressed by the high quality of those we interviewed and the many good ideas they presented.  It was a very difficult decision," said Curtin.  She reported that Burhans was the unanimous choice.  "We found her enthusiasm to be very exciting.  We also were pleased by the amount of research she had done about both the EDA and Morgan County."  Curtin commented on Burhans' diverse experience in community and economic development as well as tourism both in other parts of West Virginia and in North Carolina.  "We anticipate that she will bring both fresh ideas and a new voice to the economic development conversation," she said.  

Burhans is a graduate of Shepherd University. She starts in her new position on August 4.
