Charleston was the capitol of West Virginia and one of the largest cities in the area. Prior to the Great War, it was a hotbed of political dissent and saw countless protests for workers' rights.Fallout 76 loading screen

Charleston was the pre-War capital city of West Virginia.

BackgroundEdit

In post-War Appalachia in 2102, Charleston sits on the boundary between The Forest and Ash Heap. On Christmas Day of 2082, in an event called "The Christmas Flood," the Summersville Dam just east of the city was destroyed after a mini nuke was detonated on it by the Cutthroats and the waters of Summersville Lake were unleashed. The flooding left Charleston devastated, its streets choked by mud and debris, and some buildings were even dislodged from their foundations. Super mutants and the Scorched roam the ruins, along with the occasional Snallygaster or Grafton monster.

Prior to the Great War, Charleston was a hotbed of political dissent and saw countless protests for workers' rights.

LayoutEdit

As the capital city of the state of West Virginia, it is home to the Charleston Capitol Building. Other notable facilities and structures include Wade Airport, the Charleston Fire Department, Charleston trainyard, AVR Medical Center and the Hornwright Industrial headquarters.
