New Jerusalem was a town built within the remaining ruins of Salt Lake City.


Most of Salt Lake City and Ogden, Utah, was destroyed during the Great War in 2077. When Vault 70 opened in 2190, the residents used their three Garden of Eden Creation Kits to found the city.

New Jerusalem's prophet and apostles repeatedly voted to have no commerce with outsiders from other, failed communities, refugees, or tribals. In 2233, a number of angry tribals, raiders, and disassociated attackers ganged up on New Jerusalem's defenders, sacked the settlement in the process, and killing most of the Mormons that did not flee, or attempted to flee.

According to the New Canaan design document, the new living prophet, Judah Black, led most of the surviving remnants of the Mormon community north to Ogden, Utah, where they established the town of New Canaan. The Burham Springs design document notes that Salt Lake City is unsuitable for the NCR outpost, as is Burham Springs, which is affected by a constant fire.


The Salt Lake City mining consortium is mentioned as being located in Salt Lake City in an example location checklist given by Chris Avellone in the Tibbets Prison design document.

Behind the scenes

New Jerusalem is based on the real world location of Salt Lake City, the capital and most populous city of Utah.
