This elegant Victorian on Sherman Ave. was built c. 1906 for Max Mathers.
A direct descendant of Morgantown’s founder, Zackquill Morgan, Mathers built two homes in South Park throughout his life.
Owner and operator of his family’s successful printing house, Mathers was a proud community member and local historian. Active in civic affairs, Mathers helped Morgantown grow into a thriving city at the turn of the century.
