The Old State House is a building in Goodneighbor in the Commonwealth.

Background[edit | edit source]

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 where five American colonist died inciting rage against the British occupation. 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 Mayor Hancock's residence.[2]

Layout[edit | edit source]

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

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