Nahant was always a small coastal town. English Puritans settled the lands in the 1630s, and it slowly became a tourist destination in the 19th century. Sometime after the divergence, the Nahant Oceanological Society was founded, and the illustrious Croup family erected a mansion on the northern cliffs.
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 but they eventually took to being a group of raiders.
- Outside of Libertalia, there is not a single bed, mattress or sleeping bag on the peninsula. A Survival mode player character will not be able to rest on Nahant before taking control of the Croup Manor and crafting a bed.
