Next up is the Hayes Building located at 151 Walnut Street.

Built before 1859, Frank Demain, L.S. Hayes, and J.S. Pickenpaugh used this building until 1870, when George C. Hayes and Company opened its jewelry and grocery business in the building. By the twentieth century, a hardware store operated in the building. Located on the building is “Cheap Corner #1-1859,” which supports the pre-1859 construction date. On early maps, the brick building at the corner is present, but the building connected to it is not found on a map until 1927.

This building now houses @claudiocorporation and @highstreetrentalswv make sure to check them out!

Check out this building and many more on our Historic Downtown Morgantown Audio Walking Tour.

Good Afternoon Morgantown! Today we are featuring the Donley Apartments/Old Greer Building located on 220 Pleasant Street.

James P. Donley built this building in 1907. Donley died in 1940 and his heirs subsequently sold the property to the West Virginia Newspaper Publishing Company, owned by noted West Virginia industrialist Herbert Chester Greer. Greer built many enduring structures in the industrial, business, and civic life of Morgantown and is considered by many as the ‘father’ of the metropolitan Morgantown area.

In 1907 Greer began focusing his attention on the industrial and mineral development of Monongalia and Preston Counties. He established the Preston County Light and Power Company, Greer Limestone, and Preston County Coke Company. In 1923, he acquired the Morgantown Post and the New Dominion, Morgantown’s Republic and Democratic papers, along with other newspapers in the state. He then formed the West Virginia Newspaper Publishing Company.

This storefront of this building is now home to @ladiesngents17. Make sure to check them out!

If the current owner doesn’t address immediate deferred maintenance issues right away, it will soon suffer a fate similar to the much older buildings across the street that were demolished yesterday.

Main Street Morgantown

Healthy hair and providing her clients with the knowledge to care for it, that is Amina Dionne’s goal for Amina’s Hair & Beauty Salon located at 440 Spruce St. Spend just a few minutes talking with this business owner and you quickly realize that she has a great deal of knowledge when it comes to hair and skin care.

Born and raised in Charleston, Amina moved to Morgantown in 2017, leaving a career in healthcare behind to follow her passion. Her children were all students at WVU and she realized that Morgantown was missing a salon that focused on ethnic hair and skin care. In 2019 she decided to open her own full-service salon, where everyone is welcome. She wants to create a culture where you can be pampered and be able to afford it. In the coming weeks you will find even more services available when she begins to offer full-service facials and hydro masks!

Amina also works with the Human Resource Development Foundation, Inc. (HRDF), to mentor graduates from the cosmetology field in a stepping-stone program. HRDF “assists thousands of West Virginians through advocacy, empowerment, and the successful administration of a wide variety of employment, occupational skill training and educational programs.” She hopes that by working with this organization she can encourage others to stay in West Virginia, like she did.

Let Amina fill you in with her wisdom and take you on a hair care journey at her relaxing salon, that smells amazing, and is covered in beautiful murals. You can follow her on Facebook and Instagram and check out the website for a list of services.

Discover Downtown Today!

Welcome to Main Street Morgantown! Our beautiful city is home to over 30,000 people. Built on one of the strongest small metro economies (CNN Money), Morgantown boasts exciting opportunities for commerce, education, and residency. With abundant outdoors activities, a state of the art research institution, and a historic downtown filled with culinary experiences and shopping destinations, Morgantown is unparalleled. Nestled in the hills of northern West Virginia, Morgantown is conveniently located within a few hours of both Pittsburgh and Washington D.C., but is far enough removed to provide a relaxing and scenic ambiance.
