Freeside wasn't heavily damage thanks to Mr. House's missile defenses that destroyed the incoming nukes when the Great War started in 2077. When the Vault tribes started arising after the nuclear fire calm down, they began occupying the abandoned buildings where they fought among themselves. Then Mr. House's robots had intervene, where then they directed the natives to start building the large walls from scrape around the Freeside and New Vegas area. At first, Mr. House attempted to control both The Strip and Freeside. Eventually, House realized that there is not much value in holding Freeside so he built another wall between New Vegas and Freeside and withdraw his Securitrons from the area. The place had then turned as a way for to filter the poor and scum out of New Vegas, which in turned, make Freeside more violent. Two groups attempted to maintain order in Freeside, The Kings and The Followers of the Apocalypse. The Kings gang worked out of their main headquarters at the King's School of Impersonations, where they created order by having their gangs roam the streets and control some supplies of food and water. The Followers of the Apocalypse went a more peacefully routine in maintaining order by handling simple needs like medical attention and providence of food and water for those that need it. Though they lacking numbers and supplies need to tell with the number of people that come in, their main headquarters at the Old Mormon Fort is more than ideal spot to help as many people as possible. Only recently has the NCR setup shop within Freeside itself by opening up a humanitarian operation where food is handed out. Only catch is that the food is only made available for NCR citizens, which are few in numbers within Freeside.
