Anyone know who this good looking copule is at Bridgeport High School's 1953 Homecoming? If you guessed Dick Moore and Janet Calfee Harris you would be correct.
The future of JCPenney in Bridgeport and nationwide is uncertain, but the past in Harrison County is secure. For those that don't know, the retail giant was once located in downtown Clarksburg. Here is a photo of the inside of the store when business was still booming in the 1970s.
