The Old Olney S. Wilson Building is a collapsing office building in the Fallout 3 add-on Broken Steel, which can be accessed via the Old Olney underground.

As part of the quest Shock Value, the Lone Wanderer passes through this area to reach Olney Powerworks. The area is inhabited by four Enclave soldiers who arrive via a Vertibird on the top level shortly before the Lone Wanderer.

Points of interest[]

Notable loot[]

  • Two of the rare police hats can be found here. One is in an office near a cash register, and another is in the center of the room perched above the toilet on a piece of concrete jutting out from a supporting column. Standing on the empty deathclaw cage enables access to the latter one.
  • Two mini nukes, sitting on a ledge inside of the fallen length of the radio tower in the center of the area. To retrieve them, you can either shoot them off the ledge and then gather them from the floor below, or make your way up to the east side of the highest level of the building and jump into the length of the tower's open end.
  • One Nuka-grenade hidden underneath a desk. Go up the wall as high as the pile of debris will go, turn right and walk along the wall to find the desk.

  • The S. Wilson Building does not match any surface building in Old Olney, being five stories tall with billboards and a collapsed radio tower on the roof, features no building visible in Old Olney has.
  • An Enclave Vertibird is on the highest level, inaccessible to the player. If fired upon, it will catch on fire and then attempt to flee shortly before exploding.
  • The level just below the Vertibird is inaccessible. Accessing it on the PC version via console commands reveals that there are missing walls and no loot (except for the randomly-generated contents of a few desks and/or filing cabinets).
  • Via console commands, one can find a gnome holding an iron next to an ironing board with a teddy bear on it. Disabling clipping allows a player to go through the wall beyond the stairs which exit into the Powerworks, to find the otherwise inaccessible gnome.
  • Jumping out of bounds from the top floor will teleport the player character back to the entrance.


The Old Olney S. Wilson Building appears only in the Fallout 3 add-on Broken Steel.
