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

Background

This monument commemorates American Civil War Union officer Colonel Benjamin Franklin Kelley, who became the colonel of the 1st Virginia Infantry in May 1861 before participating in the Battle of Philippi in June 1861.[1] The monument audio tour, narrated by 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 and the audio tour station.

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 correctly spells it with two E's, as does the monument itself.

Appearances

The Colonel Kelly Monument appears only in Fallout 76.

Behind the scenes

This location is based on Colonel Benjamin Franklin 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.
