Faneuil Hall is a location in the Commonwealth in 2287.


The building seems to be intact on the outside. However, both the surrounding area and inside are completely overrun by super mutants. On the front plaza is a large fire surrounding the destroyed statue, with metal spikes in the foundation itself. There are at least four super mutants; including one super mutant suicider patrolling the premises. Two doors at the front and back grant access to the building.

Three protectrons can be activated via a terminal upon an entry from the front of the building (The terminal is to the right of the entrance, behind the trash can.) Up on the roof, the Sole Survivor can start the quest The Gilded Grasshopper (if not previously started at the Valentine Detective Agency, via the Detective Case Files quest) after reading the note inside the grasshopper. It can be found on the tip of the weather vane atop the golden dome next to the ruined bell tower.


Donated to the city of Boston in 1742 by French merchant Peter Faneuil, Faneuil Hall was a commercial hub in colonial Massachusetts. It played a notable role in the American Revolution. Protests against the British Sugar and Stamp Acts that began here led to the doctrine of “no taxation without representation.” Later meetings were held here which culminated in the Boston Tea Party. Many of the Founding Fathers met here or gave speeches here (notably Samuel Adams) leading to the building’s nickname, “The Cradle of Liberty.”

Faneuil Hall is evidently based on Boston's Faneuil Hall, but with a few changes. The most notable is the different number of windows.
