农业部长托马斯· 艾克哈特依照战前确立的这条继承规则宣布自己将成为这个英克雷分部的最高领导人following loss of contact with the President and both the 财政部长 and the Secretary of the Interior去世。因为核战争对通讯系统产生的显而易见的干扰和破坏，白泉碉堡同钻井平台以及鸦岩基地失去了联系，埃克哈特宣布自己成为这个英克雷分部的最高领导人 and focused on his driving obsession: the eradication of communism. To this end he sought to gain control of the three automated nuclear silos in Appalachia, Site Alpha, Site Bravo, and Site Charlie, in order to launch a final retaliatory strike against China. First, 为了确保这一地位的权威性，他指示自己的手下骇入阿拉帕契亚地区的选举系统，在核战后的2083年启动了美国总统的选举程序——不消说，他轻松胜出，因为英克雷士兵显然不会投票给其它人。在成功“胜选”总统之后，埃克哈特将白泉基地中的英克雷成员召集到一起，就是否要继续与大洋彼岸的对手进行战争一事进行投票，凡是投出反对票的人都被他请到了一旁的房间之内：他通过到手的权限直接授意白泉基地的人工智能方士关闭了房间的大门，然后向其中泵入致命的毒气。在埃克哈特的强令下，艾伦·圣地亚哥上校通过自动晋升程序 at Camp McClintock的认证，成为了将军：唯一有资格进入白泉基地作战指挥区的人，从而获得对阿拉帕契亚地区核导弹发射井的控制权。
Eckhart's plan never came to fruition. 2086年，在圣地亚哥将军无法忍受埃克哈特的肆意妄为，而威胁辞职不干，埃克哈特秘密地将她关押起来後，以拉格纳斯托迪尔少校为领导的圣地亚哥派系公开发起叛乱，他们成功拘捕了埃克哈特并救出了圣地亚哥将军。圣地亚哥将军下令切断基地的有线通讯并摧毁方士，但后一个目标只成功了一部分：方士的确在爆炸中遭受了严重的损伤并失去了绝大多数记忆，但它对白泉基地的控制却并未因此离线，出于报复方士立刻封锁了整个区域，并且向区域内灌入了致命的毒气，无差别地杀死了包括埃克哈特每一个当时仍然存活的英克雷成员。 In the years after this event, 方士着手于自身的修复工作，配置于此的机器人完成了相当程度的设施复原工作， but remained unable to contact Control Station ENCLAVE for further instructions. 它耐心地等待下一个访客 to help it restore communications until 2102, when a Resident of Vault 76 entered the bunker.
The Whitespring bunker has two exterior entrances: the main entrance is a blast door built into a hillside a short distance from the Whitespring Resort with a parking lot that is accessed by a side road, and a secondary entrance can be found near the Whitespring service entrance. A third entrance in the form of an elevator is accessible within the Whitespring Resort's main building and is concealed behind a sliding wall panel. All three entrances are protected by laser grids that prevent unauthorized individuals from passing through them; these can be deactivated with Sam Blackwell's congressional access card, which is obtained from the abandoned waste dump. Beyond the laser grid at the main entrance is an additional layer of security: an unmarked cog-shaped blast door, Vault-Tec.
Immediately inside the bunker is the orientation floor. Those that enter the bunker must first be photographed and then led through a decontamination apparatus to remove any traces of radiation. Past orientation is a large window exhibiting the room containing the apparatuses that hold MODUS. Next is the admittance floor, where new residents must register themselves and optionally take a questionnaire about pre-War U.S. history. To the right of admittance are two elevators which lead back to the orientation floor.
Individuals with proper clearance can proceed north of admittance to the foyer section, which has connects to the communications wing, military wing, science wing, medical wing, production wing and robotics wing. The military wing contains the brig, which is equipped with two cells and a prisoner interrogation device, and also connects to the command wing, which requires higher clearance to access.
Individuals with the rank of General or above in the United States Armed Forces can proceed to the command wing, inside the military wing, right from the wing's entrance. In the command wing, Generals can view gradually decoded keywords for each nuclear silo around the Appalachia, used to unscramble Appalachian launch codes, view information relating on how to launch nuclear weapons and access surveillance terminals, which have the ability to start radiant quests, viewing the location of a single launch code piece specific to that of Site Alpha, Site Bravo or Site Charlie.
Connected to the command wing, is the bunker's armory, in which Generals can access and purchase a wider variety of products to help them above-ground, compared to the production wing stock, one such item being the prototype X-01 power armor plans. Archives relating to the previous human inhabitants of the bunker can also be viewed in the archive terminals, found to the far side of the armory.
There is also an executive suite, which is currently locked and officially inaccessible, but is expected to be available to players that attain the rank of President during the quest Race for the Presidency.
