Morgantown has grown from a small village into a town that sprawls across the hillsides and the river. Today, the city is composed of a central core and many neighborhoods and communities which are sliced into 10 wards.

Morgantown has honored their native son, Don Knotts (Mayberry's favorite deputy), by putting a large Star in the sidewalk outside of the Metropolitan Theatre. Don died before the star was installed but he knew that it was planned for him and he thanked the town and the mayor for giving him this honor.
the Star is at 369 High Street.
