The door to the house can be opened with the Ridgefield gate key that is on Arkansas, the sniper located in the destroyed building, or with a Very Easy Lockpick skill. Gibson's key also unlocks this house and is found on Gibson's corpse in the Capitol Post building.
There is a dead raider in the living room and a model of home on a ruined table. It is a sculpture of a miniature suburban house, and it can be opened with Gibson's key or be lockpicked if the player has a Lockpick skill of 100. Unfortunately, even though it is strongly locked, it only contains a few minor items. A letter from Vault-Tec found within the house states that the family living in the home applied for a Vault but was declined. The letter also reveals that there are Vaults in both Oklahoma and "newly annexed Canada" with available space.
In the small bedroom, there is a Duck and Cover! poster on the wall where the window is located, and in the master bedroom one can find two skeletons on the bed huddled together. There is also a safe (Easy lock) located behind the bookcase.
- Tumblers Today, on the desk in the study.
- Four pre-War books, inside the house (one in the living room and three upstairs).
Gibson house appears only in Fallout 3.
