Nahant is a town ruin in Essex County, Massachusetts and is a part of the Commonwealth in 2287.


Nahant was always a small coastal town. In the native American language, nahanten meant "twins" which still describes the archipelago centuries later with the two islands connected by a thin isthmus. English Puritans settled the lands in the 1630s, and it slowly became a tourist destination in the 19th century.[1]

Sometime after Divergence, the Nahant Oceanological Society was founded, and the illustrious Croup family erected a mansion on the northern cliffs. Two centuries after the Great War the isthmus is populated by the feral remains of the aforementioned Croup family and is home to some of the local gigantic mutated crustaceans.[Non-game 1]


Nahant is located on a small peninsula to the northeast of the Commonwealth, surrounded by ocean with only one major line of entry, a thin land bridge from the northwest of the landmass.

Immediately after entering, there is a Red Rocket station and a small street containing the Nahant Sheriff's Department. Part of a large port in the southwest, Nahant Wharf, had been converted into Libertalia by remnants of the Commonwealth Minutemen who have since devolved into a group of raiders. Outside of Libertalia, there is not a single bed, mattress, or sleeping bag on the peninsula.

The rest of Nahant consists of an old upper-class residential neighborhood, featuring Nahant Chapel, Nahant Oceanological Society, Nahant Bar and Restaurant and a potential settlement, Croup Manor.

  1. Fallout 4 Vault Dweller's Survival Guide Collector's Edition pp.324-325: "ZONE 4: COASTAL COMMONWEALTH
    Those hoping to vacation on the eastern shores of the Commonwealth would do well to pack a copious supply of ammunition and have trained long and hard for this outing, as the threat level of the roaming miscreants in this zone is deemed “most dangerous.” The township of Revere has been razed by Raiders. Nahant offers quiet walks interspersed with carnage, courtesy of ferals. Up north, Salem long continues its reputation for horror. Farther inland, toward East Boston and the airport, the ferociousness of your foes lessens just a little. The Brotherhood of Steel's imminent arrival at the airport should provide a brief respite should you agree to ally with them. Finally, those brave to dip their toes in the ocean may find one or two surprises under the waves."
