The Old Granary burying ground is a small cemetery near the Massachusetts State House. It consists of a small section with several rows of headstones, many of which are toppled. An obelisk in the center rear is the most prominent, with the name "Franklin" on it. Just outside is a parked bus, and feral ghouls wander around the cemetery and on the bus. This is a simple plot with several gravestones, centered around a memorial obelisk. A dead Gunner and a duffle bag are tucked into the right corner of the plot.
- Road to Freedom: The Sole Survivor has heard of a group that aims to take on the Institute and only has the clue, "Follow the Freedom Trail." To find the Railroad, they have to start at Boston Common.
The burying ground is the third stop on the Freedom Trail, with the code "2: A."
The Old Granary burying ground appears only in Fallout 4.
Behind the scenes
The location is based on the real-world Granary Burying Ground in Boston. The Franklin obelisk is similar to one in the real world, as a memorial to several members of Benjamin Franklin's family. Benjamin Franklin himself is buried in Philadelphia.

This burial ground was established in 1660, making it the oldest surviving burial ground in Boston. Many famous Revolutionary War heroes were buried here, including John Hancock, Paul Revere, Samuel Adams, and the victims of the Boston Massacre. In 2031, after the tragic death of Emilia Butler, the city council voted unanimously to have her remains interred here.
This is part of the Freedom Trail. The number “2” is daubed on the circular ground plaque pointing at the letter “A.” It is overrun by ferals. The adjacent church is sealed and cannot be entered."
