Not all vaults were designed with experimental purposes. Vault 76 is one of seventeen known "control" vaults, meaning that it was used as a baseline to compare to experimental vaults. Vault 76 housed 500 occupants and was programmed to open to the wasteland outside 20 years after a nuclear war.
Construction of Vault 76 began in 2065 and ended in 2069, under the supervision of Vault-Tec official Giles Wolstencroft. Vault 76 then debuted seven years later in 2076, in honor of the United States' tercentenary when discussing Vault-Tec's plans to expand. Originally scheduled to reopen in 2097, Vault 76 eventually opened in 2102, twenty-five years after the Great War, on a day called Reclamation Day.
