Danvers was a pre-War city in Massachusetts.


Sal Barsconi, the mob boss of one of the Italian families in Boston, ordered a shooting of a theater in Danvers, resulting in the deaths of many civilians.[1]


Danvers is mentioned only in Fallout 4.

Behind the scenesEdit

Icon cut contentThe following is based on Fallout 4 cut content and has not been confirmed by canon sources.

Danvers was originally going to appear in Fallout 4, but as the game's world became more and more compressed, Danvers was eventually merged into Salem, as the two were right next to each other. The two towns have a rivalry in real life, and developers initially wanted to reflect that in the game. A cut questline involved mutated children from Salem being given strange powers, to which Danvers residents reacted by persecuting them and accusing them of being witches.[2]
