Background[edit | edit source]
Concord was a famous historic town, founded in 1635, famous along with nearby Lexington as the site of several battles that lead to the American Revolutionary War. The town's centerpiece, the Museum of Freedom, described these events and welcomed tourists, as the rest of the city shows remnants of patriotic bunting, flags, and signs. Sanctuary Hills, a suburb of Concord, was the home of the Sole Survivor before the Great War.
Layout[edit | edit source]
The houses and stores of Concord are mostly ruined and boarded up, but there are a few areas of note: the Museum of Freedom and the church in the southeast part of town; the workhouse near the main road on the north side of town; Concord Speakeasy relatively in the center of town, down the street from the Museum of Freedom, and Concord civic access underground.

Notes[edit | edit source]
- After some time has passed since "When Freedom Calls," raiders will begin respawning around Concord. The deathclaw that attacks the Sole Survivor during this quest will not respawn.
- Concord is often one of the earliest locations that the player character will come across, which means that the raiders found in Concord are fixed at a low level.
Appearances[edit | edit source]
Concord appears only in Fallout 4.
Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
- The city is based on the real-world location of Concord, Massachusetts, a Boston suburb located 19 miles to its west. The town is well known for its role in the American Revolution, specifically in the Battles of Lexington and Concord in 1775.
- The bridge that one crosses to go from Sanctuary Hills to Concord resembles the Old North Bridge where one of the main confrontations in the Battle of Concord took place.
- The "Entering Concord" sign exists in the real world in the same likeness when entering the town.
