i was born in fairmont, though i grew up in elkins. i always liked fairmont, but it's starting to feel run down. most of the energy it could've had is sapped by nearby morgantown and clarksburg.

My grandmother was born and raised in Fairmont, but I've only been a couple times.

I live in Morgantown, and many of my friends are moving back to Fairmont for the lower housing prices.
