The Old State House is a location in Goodneighbor. 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 residence for some of Goodneighbor's inhabitants.


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 can not be accessed from here.


"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."

Ground floorEdit

The ground floor comprises an entrance hall with a spiral staircase in the middle and two opposite exits, one leading to the south and one to the north where the central place is located. The staircase is guarded by two Neighborhood Watches. In the other directions are four additional rooms, one of which is inhabited by a Drifter.

First floorEdit

The spiral staircase leads both upwards and downwards. The first floor consists of four rooms also and is as well guarded by two Neighborhood Watches. The easternmost room has an exit to the balcony where Hancock gives a speech. On the other side is Hancock's living room that includes his personal terminal and where he often can be found. On each encounter he is protected by his bodyguard Fahrenheit.

Second floorEdit

One floor up are three more rooms. The one in the middle serves as a bedroom for three Drifters.


The basement is mostly empty. In one corner there is a holding cell which can be accessed without a key.


Notable lootEdit

  • At the second floor on the other side of the enlightened room is a crate with random loot.
