Morgantown is a city in the Forest region of Appalachia in 2102.


After The Christmas Flood nearly wiped out the Responders, the remaining few moved to Morgantown, claiming the Morgantown Airport as their headquarters. They were trying to keep Morgantown safe, setting an automated protectron route to guard the city. Sometime before 2102, the Responders and people of Morgantown were wiped out.

The city itself prior to the Responders moving in fell to the squabbling of numerous rival student gangs. These gangs were formed by students survivors, that emerged from the Vault-Tec University and the city of Morgantown, and were led by students from VTU who had been studying to become overseers. The students organized into groups and eventually formed powerful feudal gangs with strict chains of command.

These gangs eliminated or absorbed each other in their struggle to procure resources and supplies, as well as to establish control over territories in the city. Sometime after, only two sizeable gangs remained to dominate the landscape of Morgantown: the Street House and the Roof House. Street House dominated the lower level of Morgantown and actively sought the destruction of the Roof House, while the Roof House dominated the upper level of Morgantown and sought much of the same. By the time Vault 76 was opened, both gangs ceased to exist.

Behind the scenes

  • On the east side of town, there is an apartment building with a Nuka-Cola billboard. Inside one of the rooms is a set of wooden blocks that spell out "BFG," a reference to the weapon first appearing in the Doom franchise, published by Bethesda Softworks since 2010.
  • Morgantown is based upon the real-world city of Morgantown, WV. Interestingly, the real Morgantown is located north of Grafton; its in-game location more accurately corresponds with the town of Buckhannon, WV.
  • The monorail is based on the Morgantown Personal Rapid Transit (PRT), operated by West Virginia University.
