Beautiful scenery, fun things to do, and FAMOUS PEOPLE.

In case you didn't know, there are a number of well known people that were born or lived in West Virginia. I've picked out a few of the most famous.

Everyone knows this guy. You may remember him as Barney Fife from the Andy Griffith show; or the Incredible Mr. Limpett...I could go on and on, but I think that's enough said.

Ladies and gentlemen,

Presenting

MR.DON KNOTTS

ACTOR
Birthplace: Morgantown
Not only is he from Morgantown, which happens to be my hometown, he went to the same high school I did. That would be Morgantown High School. He was there before my time...darn it!





This next little dynamo came from Fairmont, West Virginia. She made us very proud by winning the gold medal in the olympics.
