The Colonel KellyIn-game spelling monument is a location in Toxic Valley region of Appalachia.

Background

The Colonel Kelly Monument commemorates Colonel Benjamin Franklin Kelley, who took part in the Battle of Philippi and became the colonel of the 1st Virginia Infantry in May 1861.[1] The Col. Kelley monument audio tour, courtesy of Dick Shale, is available at the site.

Layout

This location is situated on a hill with an unpaved road leading up to a small parking lot. Two sets of wooden stairs start here and lead up to the top of the hill, where the monument sits near some park benches. An Appalachia audio tour station is candidly narrated by Dick Shale.[1]

There are two containers that can be looted here including a cooler in the ground on the second level of the stairs, and a wooden crate in a van on the road leading up to the parking lot. There is also a coal deposit to the west.

Notes

Despite the location name misspelling Colonel Kelley's name with only one E, the subtitles for Dick Shale's audio tour for the monument (see above) correctly spells it with two E's.

Appearances

The Colonel Kelly monument appears only in Fallout 76.

Behind the scenes

The Colonel Kelly Monument is based on Colonel Kelley's real burial site, featuring a similar bronze bust and plaque set into a granite gravestone. However, the real monument is located in Arlington National Cemetery, not West Virginia.
