Monongah Reviews

1 review
I moved to Monongah,Wv in September 2016. I love the friendly people in the area. The schools are awesome! My 9 year old son loves going to school here. My son feels comfortable walking to the basketball court with a few of his friends. The local police force follow school buses and patrol often to keep a safe community. I would love to see a little store go in. Monongah,Wv only offers one gas station and a seasonal shop. However, we love walking down on a nice summer evening to get ice cream and chat about our day.
