Abraham Washington is the 45-year old[1] owner and curator of the Capitol Preservation Society in Rivet City in 2277.



Abraham Washington was born in 2232. He collects U.S. relics from the D.C. area, as well as famous U.S. documents. He inherited the museum from his parents who where just as passionate about preserving their heritage as he is.[1]

Abraham Washington does not have any known family still alive.

He is a social outcast, who rarely moves outside of the museum and often talks to himself. He has better bonding with the objects in his preservation society than with any person.[1]

Daily schedule

As curator, he is normally seen walking around Capitol Preservation Society rooms and sometimes around other parts nearby.

Interactions with the player character

Talking to Abraham Washington for the first time you will learn about his Capitol Preservation Society and some basic information about American history.

After a short dialogue he will ask you to retrieve the Declaration of Independence from the National Archives. Most of the artifacts he has on display were also pillaged from the National Archives. Looting from his rooms will yield nothing of major value.



Abraham will purchase the following:

Items from the National Archives

Main article: Stealing Independence

Items from the Museum of History

  • If you kill both of the other prospective buyers, Abraham will not offer a speech bonus price on pre-war artifacts which you sell him.

Items from Vault 92

Main article: Agatha's Song


Apparel Weapon Other item On death
Dirty Pre-War Relaxedwear

  • When asked about the history of the Declaration of Independence, Abraham will give a humorous, inaccurate description filled with anachronisms, saying that the document was signed at "Fort McHarry" (as opposed to McHenry) in Philadelphia and was taken by plane (presumably) to Britain, to be presented to the king. He also calls the Revolutionary War the "Evolutionary War". His issues with history are understandable, considering that after 200 years, the obvious lack of an institution to preserve history would force him to use damaged archives which might have certain names barely readable.
  • Abraham Washington is marked as essential.

Behind the scenes

  • His name is a combination of "Abraham" Lincoln and George "Washington", two U.S. presidents.


Abraham Washington appears only in Fallout 3.
