The Old Granary burying ground is a location in the Commonwealth in 2287. It is the third stop on the Freedom Trail.


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. Feral ghouls wander around the cemetery and in the bus.


The Granary Burying Grounds were 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.


  • The burying ground is the third stop on the Freedom Trail, with the code "2: A."
  • The metal plate under the name "Franklin" seems worn flat, with no legible words.


The Old Granary burying ground appears only in Fallout 4.

Behind the scenes

The location is based on the real-world Old Granary Burying Ground in Boston.

  • The real-world Granary Burying Ground is vastly larger, and judging by the size comparison of Park Street Church to the southwest, it would appear that the large brick building with the billboard for Back Bay Bowling was built on top of half of the original cemetery.
  • Unlike the real-world, the obelisk marks the grave of Benjamin Franklin instead of his parents.
