Saugus Ironworks is a National Historic Site located about 10 miles northeast of downtown Boston in Saugus, Massachusetts.

Background[edit | edit source]

This site is the first integrated ironworks in North America, founded by John Winthrop the Younger and in operation between 1646 and approximately 1670. Once a historic national site, this pre–Revolutionary War ironworks was reopened during the ramp-up to provide materials for the war with China. The site is now run by Slag, a particularly ferocious raider and his raider clan, the Forged.[1]

Layout[edit | edit source]

Saugus Ironworks[edit | edit source]

Buckets of molten slag dot the building and iron rebar is scattered throughout. At the end of the first room is a staircase leading to a hall of management offices, or continues up into the rafters of the building. A wooden bridge in the rafter connects the first room to the second.

A staircase in the second room leads back down to the catwalks. Directly behind the stairs in the eastern most room on the second floor is a a weapons workbench and an armor workbench. A staircase in the southwest of this room leads up the entrance of the blast furnace.

A power armor station and door to the roof are just opposite the blast furnace door.

Saugus Blast Furnace[edit | edit source]

The blast furnace is a four story room with catwalks circling around a central bucket of molten iron.

Inhabitants[edit | edit source]
