County crossing is a location and settlement in the Commonwealth in 2287.


The settlement is adjacent to two other locations, including the nuclear power station on its western border and the National Guard training yard to the northeast. A super mutant base is also nearby, within the Revere satellite array. Doc Weathers will travel here as one of his stops even without the player character becoming allied with the settlement and building a trading post.

There is a ruined house without a roof, a small shack with two owned mattresses, a workshop and two unnamed settlers growing 15 bushels of mutfruit. There is a water pump between the shack and the crop field. There is also a cooking station. In the northeast corner of the settlement is a small pond of water that can be used to build water purifiers.

  • The unmarked nuclear power plant to the southwest is irradiated, reaching up to +56 rads at the base of each containment sphere. A flamer is on the ground between the spheres next to a toolbox, guarded by a pair of leveled bloodbugs. A wooden crate with minor items is inside the fenced-in power transformer area.
  • The nuclear power station located across the road from the settlement does not feed into the Boston power grid. The wires continue to run roughly northwest, passing through Abernathy farm, before going off the map entirely.
  • Everything except for the big tree, the ruined house, and the starting shack can be removed or scrapped. The flat and rectangular area provides a relatively large open space for building.
