Wilhelm's Wharf, also know as Captain Paglia Dockside Bar & Grill, is a small wharf with a shack situated on the banks of the Potomac River in the Capital Wasteland, southeast from the Super-Duper Mart. It is inhabited only by Grandma Sparkle.
Wilhelm's Wharf was a small settlement located near the
Potomac River in the Washington, D.C. area. The old woman Grandma Sparkle resides in the area, and acts as a local trader. Her two sons hunt for mirelurk meat along the river.
The shack hugs the bulge of Potomac River with access to the bitumen road to the southwest. Four tables and eight chairs remain intact in the yard. Inside the shack itself is a cabinet with a random assortment of loot.
An outhouse is at the end of brick pavement along the Potomac; behind the outhouse lies a drainage culvert with a damaged sewer grate that leads to the
Hubris Comics utility tunnels.
A sunken boat with some
first aid boxes and ammunition boxes can be found in the water nearby.
