The historic Metropolitan Theatre first opened as “America’s Most Beautiful Playhouse” and remains that way today thanks to the hard work of the Morgantown citizens and the city who owns the building. For years the theatre sat empty and decaying, becoming an eyesore for downtown Morgantown, WV. The Mills Group collaborated with David Kemnitzer, an architect from Shepherdstown, WV, to complete over 10 distinct scopes of services, ranging from backstage improvements to plaster restoration and decorative painting with the end result being a completely revitalized facility that the community has enjoyed ever since. In 2011 the project was awarded WV AIA Merit Award for Achievement in Architecture in Preservation.
