Acadia was co-founded by DiMA, Faraday and Chase in the ruins of an observatory with the intention of creating a safe place for synths to live freely and not have to hide their nature. From there, DiMA was able to develop fog condensers to protect the residents of Far Harbor from the Fog. This consequently angered the Children of Atom, as the Fog is sacred to them, leading to tensions between the factions. It is implied during the quest The Price of Memory that Acadia has the technology needed to perform a mind wipe. A large amount of salvaged computer equipment is present on the top floor, which stores and reads some of DiMA's memories.
