Built high up in the trees to avoid the swamp and the creeping strangler vines that slowly throttled the Mire, this settlement grew out of a simple treehouse. Running away from raiders, Free States members Lorne and his daughter Darlene discovered it on September 19, 2081. They climbed it and used an advantageous position to eliminate their pursuers.
Afterward, they concluded that building their houses at the top of the treeline would be the best idea if they wanted to survive. One of their group members, Caroline, volunteered to walk to Gavin McCullough's place and ask for help, as he was a master carpenter. Gavin and his crew agreed to help with the project.
Work proceeded rapidly and within a month, they expanded the treehouse into a village. Gavin designed a way to use other nearby trees to build a series of interconnected platforms. It was a clever design - everyone would have their own platform with living quarters and a roof over their heads. They were close to each other, but each group would still have some privacy.
Under Gavin's direction, the two groups soon finished the village, but repeated attacks by raiders finally claimed the life of Darlene on November 19, 2081, leading the group to subsequently abandon the village. Lorne booby-trapped the platform and moved on, realizing that since the raiders knew where the village was, it was only a matter of time until more of them decided to hit them in force. Eventually the raiders took over the abandoned village, at least until they too left, leaving the village empty of human inhabitants.
As humans returned to Appalachia in 2103, a group of villagers took up residence in the treehouse village and converted it into their own home. However, they arrived sometime after the Settlers and Raiders, being one of the newest groups of Appalachian residents.
Located off the ground, the village is spread across over a dozen platforms connected by walkways. The platforms are made from a variety of materials and built as the terrain permitted. The central part of the village is a large shack with a cooking station and tinker's workbench, connected directly with a platform that housed the pantry and the main kitchen.
From there, denizens could reach the northern platforms, which includes one that hosted the living quarters and another jutting out northwards. The southern side includes several smaller platforms, including one that houses the secondary kitchen, bar, and housing for families.
As of 2103, the village's new inhabitants have partially overhauled the location. Notably, the shack jutting into the cliff face is now a makeshift armory and crafting area with armor and weapons workbenches.

Behind the scenesEdit
- In one of the bedrooms in the treehouse village, there is a wall with the quote "I'm critical of everything but hold myself to the highest standard" written on it.

- There is a cut dialogue quest (CUT_BS01_Dialogue_TreehouseVillage), as well as several cut voice types for the villagers. New content at the treehouse village has been developed since Wastelanders, including a cut quest known as "Restoring Mosstown"(CUT_W05_Community_Treehouse_Village_Quest). "W05" is an editor ID intended for content that is part of Wastelanders, while "BS" relates to Steel Dawn content.
