Summersville was a small, quaint town in Appalachia, with a population of just 724 on the eve of the Great War. The seat of Nicholas County, West Virginia, it was founded in 1824 and named after Lewis Summers, a local judge. The city was once home to the annual Potato Festival. Now, it is a haven for whatever passes through the area and was notable for raider ambushes as they fought the war with the Order of Mysteries.
The small town is inhabited by a large number of super mutants. Before the war, it appears the town was part of the automated voting system for the upcoming election, as the town has multiple voting tents and booths. The rooftops contain multiple make-shift camps, which include a weapons workbench and an armor workbench.
The town has little of interest, aside from being a haven for super mutants and the quest Find jukeboxes to bring the music back to Summersville. There is a fair amount of loot, a note to collect, and a cooking station to use, however. The town is divided into four quarters by the roads passing through it and bounded by the hillside to the east and remnants of the reservoir to the west.
The northern half of the town includes voter services tents to the west, overlooking the reservoir, right next to the church and a graveyard in the back. The rest of this part of the town consists of run-down residential and commercial buildings with little in the way of notable loot.
The southern half is more interesting. The western quadrant includes and overgrown playground and an accessible laundromat and ice cream parlor, with a sniper's nest set up on top of the southeastern corner. On the opposite side of the road is a jewelry store and an apartment block on the southern end, with a steamer trunk inside. The northern end of this quarter includes a delicatessen, dry cleaning service and another voting tent.

Summersville appears only in Fallout 76.
Behind the scenesEdit
Summersville (and other locations of the namesake), reference the real-world Summersville. Interestingly, the real Summersville and its associated landmarks are located roughly 50 miles east of Charleston, whereas in-game they border each other. Its approximate real-life location instead contains the game's version of Huntersville.
