Hopewell Cave is a location in Fallout 76.
Located near a pre-War traffic collision site, Hopewell Cave is an eerie place with a deadly inhabitant. In the distant past, it was used as a burial ground by the Adena culture and discovered by settlers in 1816. However, research by anthropologists cast doubt on whether they truly used the site, as the tools in the region from around 1000 to 200 BC were too primitive to allow for carving out burial grounds of this magnitude. One anthropologist advanced a theory that the Adena remains were moved to the site by an unknown second culture. At the top of the hill that the cave is located under is another burial mound but of a modern kind. A small cemetery used by local West Virginians, it has since been defiled over the years, but many have still been untouched.
