W.Va. National Guard Opens Morgantown Readiness Center


The wraps are coming off a new readiness center for the West Virginia National Guard.

Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin is scheduled to be among the dignitaries Wednesday in Morgantown for the opening ceremony. The 58,000-square-foot center will be a hub for Guard training activities and provide rental spaces for professional and community activities.

The $20.5 million center contains a concert auditorium, a commercial-sized kitchen and other features.

The city of Morgantown will own and maintain the access road to the center.
