Interior mural, Mountaineer Mall, Morgantown, WV
The Mountaineer Mall opened in 1975, anchored by JCPenney, Montgomery Ward, and Murphy's Mart. In spite of a botched '80s expansion (adding a fourth anchor, Stone & Thomas, and a line of stores with only exterior entrances), it fell on hard times in the '90s and is hanging by a thread today.

This interesting mural of the Morgantown area from 1983 appears within the corridors of the mall. Included are many area buildings and landmarks, including the mall itself, which appears here in its pre-'80s expansion form.
