The National Guard training yard is a location in the Commonwealth in 2287.[1]


The National Guard training yard is a multi-building compound that served as a training facility and armory for the Massachusetts National Guard before the war. There are few accessible buildings, and the facility is filled with feral ghouls and turrets.

  1. Fallout 4 Vault Dweller's Survival Guide p. 294: "Two hundred years ago, the National Guard was in higher demand than ever before. This facility was expanded just prior to the bombs falling. Currently, this location has recently been visited by the Brotherhood of Steel; they used this location to house and repair Power Armor."
