Old Granary Burying Ground is a location in the Commonwealth, taking its name from a granary built on the adjacent plot in 1737. It was torn down and replaced by the Park Street Church in 1809, but the name persisted.

Background[edit | edit source]

This burial ground was established in 1660, located on Tremont Street. Although it was the city of Boston's third-oldest cemetery,[1] the city's expansion consumed the other two burial grounds, making it the oldest surviving burial ground in Boston. Many famous Revolutionary War heroes were buried here, including John Hancock, Paul Revere, Samuel Adams, Shem Drowne, 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.[2] However, now the grave site is lousy with feral ghouls.

Layout[edit | edit source]

This is a simple plot with several gravestones, centered around a memorial obelisk. A dead Gunner and a duffle bag are tucked into into the right corner of the plot.

Appearances[edit | edit source]

Old Granary Burying Ground appears only in Fallout 4.

    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."
