GMCVB adds Taylor County to coverage area

The Greater Morgantown Convention and Visitors Bureau, the tourism marketing arm of Monongalia and Preston counties, will soon be adding Taylor County to its coverage area.
The move came at the request of Taylor County Commission and the city of Grafton, the county seat, said Susan Riddle, president and chief executive officer of the GMCVB.
“We are better together,” said Riddle, adding the GMCVB board approved the expansion into Taylor County. The move is expected to be completed by fall, she said.
By adding Taylor County, the home of Tygart State Park and the birthplace of Mother’s Day founder, Anna Jarvis, the visitor’s bureau now has more attractions to market to visitors from outside the area.
