The Old Granary Burying Ground is a location in the Boston Common neighborhood of Boston in 2287.

Background

This burial ground was established in 1660.[1] Many famous Revolutionary War heroes are buried here, including John Hancock, Paul Revere, Samuel Adams, and the victims of the Boston Massacre.[1] In 2031, after the tragic death of Emilia Butler, the city council voted unanimously to have her remains interred here.[Non-canon 1] The cemetery is now inhabited by feral ghouls.

Layout

Outside the cemetery is a placard and Freedom Trail marker. The location is the third stop on the Freedom Trail, with the code "2:A." The cemetery consists of a small plot with several rows of headstones, many of which are toppled. An obelisk in the center engraved with the name "Franklin" is the most prominent feature. Just outside is a parked bus containing a suitcase and a cooler. A dead Gunner and a duffle bag are tucked into the back right corner of the plot.

Behind the scenes

The location is based on the real-world Granary Burying Ground in Boston. The Franklin obelisk is similar to its real-world equivalent, which serves as a memorial to several members of Benjamin Franklin's family. Benjamin Franklin himself is buried in Philadelphia.
