Clarksburg is a location in Fallout 76.
Background[edit | edit source]
The city of Clarksburg, located in the northern region of Appalachia was very much a functional city. It had a grocery store, a Post Office, a hardware store, a gun store, a church, and even a private shooting club. Unfortunately, like most of the region, it suffered from the man vs. robot riots and protesting that affected much of the rest of the state. The city was ultimately ruined after the Great War, when the Toxic Valley was polluted by industrial chemicals.
Points of interest[edit | edit source]
The hardware store in the center of town, with the Grey Tortoise advertisement, contains a fusion core generator and an armor workbench in the basement. The gun shop has a weapons workbench on the main floor. There is a cooking station on rooftop and inside a house near the center of town with protest signs. A suit of power armor can be found inside the small engine repair shop, located on the southeast corner of town. There's a Post Office that is a part of the mission Cold Case.

The city has four high schools - Washington Irving, Liberty, Kelly Miller, and Victory; the Waldo Hotel; two mansions - the Edgewood Manor and Waldomore; and the Oak Mounds - a large prehistoric earthwork mound.
