The Old State House is an unmarked location in Goodneighbor in 2287. It is the town hall of the settlement and the headquarters of the Neighborhood Watch ruled by Mayor John Hancock. Moreover, the structure serves as a residence for some of Goodneighbor's inhabitants.

BackgroundEdit

Built in 1713, the Old State House is the oldest public building in Boston. During the years before the Revolutionary War, this building was a hotbed for the ideas and ideals that would result in revolution. It was here that John Adams said, "the child Independence was born." In 1770, right outside its doors, the Boston Massacre took place, spurring the American colonists into action. The Old State House was the seat of Massachusetts government until the New State House was constructed in 1798.[1]

Surviving the Great War completely intact, it now serves as the government building of Goodneighbor and functions as the bunkhouse of the Neighborhood Watch as well as John Hancock’s residence.[2]

LayoutEdit

Old State House is located north upon entering Goodneighbor across from the shop Kill or Be Killed. The building has four floors, from the basement to the second floor. The Third Rail, which is located in a former subway station, lies under the basement and cannot be accessed from here.

First floorEdit

The first floor is built around a central spiral staircase leading to the second and basement floors. The first floor has two rooms, including a break room for the Neighborhood Watch in the west and a small museum in the east, filled with display cases.

Second floorEdit

The second floor contains another break room, as well as Hancock's living quarters, containing his private terminal. The second floor also contains a stairway near the spiral staircase leading up an attic where drifters can sleep.

BasementEdit

The basement of the building contains a prison cell for the uncommon lawbreakers of Goodneighbor who don't end up dead from the transgressions.
