Built to honor the miners of Appalachia in 1952, the modest statue was selected by Miners Representation Union and the Conglomerate of Appalachian Mining Interests out of hundreds of proposed designs. Despite being tucked away in the wilderness, the Monument proved popular enough to expand it with a large parking lot and a fleet of robotic caretakers - which also made it one of the focal points for the anti-automation protests that rocked the region before the Great War.
This location is southeast down the road from a fissure site, meaning that scorchbeasts can sometimes be found flying overhead. There is a large parking lot in the northwest section of the location, with several cars still parked there from pre-War times. Up a set of stairs from the parking lot are some charging stations containing protectrons who will activate and become hostile when approached. There is a monument to coal surrounded by many protest signs here. In the southern section of the location near the miners monument itself are two Nuka-Cola machines and a weapons workbench.
A small set of stairs leads to the miner’s monument - a bronze casting of a miner carrying a bucket of coal. In front of the monument is an audio tour station which will share some interesting facts about the landmark when activated. Two skeletons and several more protest signs lie at the monument’s base.
The miners monument appears only in Fallout 76.
