Oh, don't worry about me. I'm just fine out here. My husband, rest his poor soul, saw to it that our house was well-protected from the elements and the inhabitants of the Wastes.

— Agatha

Agatha's house is a small, one room house in the Capital Wasteland, west of the Scrapyard and northeast of Meresti Trainyard. It can be easily spotted by the radio transmission tower rising above the boulders that surround the house.


It is the home of an old widow named Agatha, who plays the violin and broadcasts her music using her late husband's radio transmitter. Here the player can get the quest, Agatha's Song, to search for the Soil Stradivarius violin in Vault 92. After completing Agatha's Song, one can start the freeform quest Going for a Song



Agatha's house is on the caravan route, as the caravan merchants are fans of Agatha's tunes. The house is nestled into the cliffs and is surrounded by boulders on three sides, with the only entrance a small wood and rope bridge that allows passage over a chasm on the west side. Over the bridge, is a broken-down white picket fence and the radio transmission mast. From this tower, Agatha transmits her violin music across the Capital Wasteland. Next to the tower is a stack of metal boxes containing random common loot and a pair of empty fifty five gallon drums. A damaged garden gnome is next to the left of the house's entryway.


Immediately to the right, there is a refrigerator and a dresser; immediately to the left, there is a chair and a desk with an accompanying chair. There is a bed in the far-left corner, with a toilet, bathtub, and sink in the far-right corner. The toilet contains a toy car and a teddy bear. A metal box offers common loot, and a hard-locked ammunition box offers somewhat better pickings. The container can be picked open, or the player can get the key to it from Agatha in the course of Agatha's Song, or with the use of the Lady Killer perk.

Notable loot

  • A hard-locked ammunition box on the table to left of the entrance. Taking the contents is considered stealing, unless it is opened with the key Agatha gives you.
  • Blackhawk, with the completion of the quest Agatha's Song and Going for a Song, giving her a Sheet music book. (Note that it cannot be stolen.)
