The Hilltop Farm Ruins[1] are an unmarked location in Fallout 3's Capital Wasteland. They are located south of Relay Tower KX-B8-11, southeast of Grisly Diner, northeast of Temple of the Union and north of AntAgonizer's Lair and Canterbury Commons.

The ruins consist of a water tower, a silo, an outhouse, a makeshift windmill, two irradiated farm plots, and a destroyed farmhouse.



The house contains a terminal which chronicles the life of a group of wastelanders who are nowhere to be found. The authors of the various terminal entries are Doc Johanson, Edgar, Jim, Rochelle, Tyrone and Tyler. In addition, four more residents called Miguel, Miles, Jacky and Vu are mentioned in the notes.

Apparently, they had been underground and started a small colony on the hill. Leadership seems to have rotated between the inhabitants once a month. It appears that they managed to make an irrigation for crops (possibly thanks to the water tower nearby) and raised chickens and goats for a while, yet only the cows survived.

The last entry speaks of the scout, Miguel, spotting travelers in the valley below, and the residents' intent to stay hidden. Their fate is unknown, though presumably, their system failed and they'd long since passed away. The fact that the last log describes Miguel spotting a group of travelers suggests that they may have been killed or forced to leave soon afterward, probably by the "travelers" themselves, otherwise they probably would have made more entries in the computer. Whatever the cause, it is most apparent that at some point the house was left destroyed, and uninhabitable.

Skeletal remains found near the terminal indicate that at least one of the settlers perished at this location.

The corpse of a lone raider can be found inside the metal container down by the pond, this suggests Raiders may have been the "travelers".

Sometimes when approaching the water tower, the game freezes (confirmed on Xbox 360 by glendale1).
