WV Lumber Co. is a location in the Forest region of Appalachia. It had been overrun by super mutants since the Great War. In 2102, the Free Radicals cleared the super mutants and made the lumber mill their main base of operations.


One of the staple companies of Appalachia located along Route 81A in Friendly, West Virginia, the WV Lumber Company was notable for continuing to employ an all-human workforce, offering good pay, good hours and overall going against the grain of the Appalachian economy, in addition to having a stunning view of the Ohio River.[1][2]


WV Lumber Co. is a large lumber mill located near a set of train tracks, where the lumber was loaded onto train cars to be shipped to the rest of the region.

The central lumber mill building contains heavy machinery as well as office space and a locked (Picklock 1) safe. There is a chemistry station on the second floor. A cooking station is outside to the north of this building, next to a skeleton and duffle bag, to the north of the main building. There is also a tinker's workbench, armor workbench, and another chemistry station located in the various sheds around the location.

  2. Fallout 76 Vault Dweller's Survival Guide p.295: "17. WV LUMBER CO.
    In the remote northwestern corner of Appalachia is an abandoned lumber mill, close to the river and the blocked railroad tunnel to the north. There are telltale signs of Super Mutant activity, so enter with care and with enough room in your inventory to gather the copious scavengeable items. Check the main metal warehouse for a possible Power Armor frame."
