I'm taking most of the boys west to go check out this Vault we heard about. Stay here and keep an eye on things until we get back, and keep a closer eye on the Fiends - those guys are crazier than Scrambler. If there's any trouble, radio ahead.”— Samuel Cooke
The front door has an Easy level lock. A ham radio is inside along with 4 to 5 Powder Gangers using the farmstead as their hideout.
- A giant damaged garden gnome outside the front of the house.
- On the table when first entering is a note under some Buffout titled, "Ranger holodisk message," that can't be picked up. It details a group of Rangers and/or other NCR troops cut off from their platoon by legionaries. This is the same note found upstairs in a building in Boulder City where there are a large number of skeletons and some NCR gear. This is due to a programming error from the developers as they mixed up the Boulder City and the Powder Gangers note, resulting in the same message being shown in both places. In fact, a different message was meant to be read and it was about one of the Powder Ganger leaders (Samuel Cooke) taking most of their gang to check Vault 19 and asking a few Powder Gangers to stay behind and keep an eye on things until their return, mostly to check on NCR and Fiends. Although this message can't be accessed in-game, it can still be found in the game files under the name PowderGangRanchMsg.
- Can be used as player's housing.
- Deathclaws, both young and fully grown, can be seen wandering south and west of this location.
- The giant damaged garden gnome will become normal sized if put into the inventory or into a container with a normal sized damaged garden gnome.
The Whittaker Farmstead appears only in Fallout: New Vegas.
