The city of Clarksburg, located in the northern region of Appalachia, was very much a functional city. It had a grocery store, a Post Office, a hardware store, a gun store, a church, and even a private shooting club. Unfortunately, like most of the region, it suffered from the man vs. robot riots and protesting that affected much of the rest of the state. The city was ultimately ruined after the Great War, when the Toxic Valley was polluted by industrial chemicals. Many of its citizens left for Morgantown, and those that stayed became sick from the toxic chemicals in the water. Eventually, the town's population was driven down to just three: Jill, Ande and Cooper Lu. Jill and Ande were soon killed by a yao guai, leaving Cooper alone. She decided to leave Clarksburg and search for survivors elsewhere.
The town of Clarksburg has many buildings along its central street, including a supermarket/pharmacy, a post office, a church, an ice cream parlor with a cooking station on the roof, a gun store with a weapons workbench and armory that can be unlocked via a level 2 terminal, a hardware store with an armor workbench, and a couple of decimated houses on the outskirts of town. The Clarksburg Shooting Club can also be found here.

Behind the scenesEdit
- The city of Clarksburg exists beyond the game. Located in Harrison County, West Virginia, the city is much larger than its representation in Fallout 76 and was listed to have a population of approximately 16,578 in 2016.
- The theater building is loosely based on the Robinson Grand Performing Arts Center, located at 444 West Pike Street. One major difference is its lack of marquee in-game.
- The hardware store and factory buildings are loosely based on the Standard Mill complex, located at the Clark Street/North 6th Street intersection.
