The coastal monument, also known as the Blackhall Needle is a monument west of Blackhall Manor. It honors Captain John Smith who discovered Point Lookout in 1612.[1]


It features a central obelisk with a commemorative plaque and some benches. There can also be miscellaneous items nearby as well as at the other relatively close campsite and dock areas. This area may at times be infested by swamp ghouls.


The coastal monument appears only in the Fallout 3 add-on Point Lookout.


  1. Fallout 3 Official Game Guide Game of the Year Edition p.678: "Here marks the landing of Captain John Smith’s shallop upon his discovery of Point Lookout in 1612. Now it’s known colloquially as Blackhall Needle due to its close proximity to Blackhall Manor [1.02], and the fact most of the locals can’t read this plaque. This is just northeast of the Blackhall Jetty [4.B]."
