Welcome to Peabody
A peaceful suburban paradise with world-class dining and luxe amenities
Once part of Salem and then Danvers, Peabody became a town in its own right in 1868. Named for wealthy philanthropist George Peabody, this tranquil, tree-lined neighborhood soon became known for its delicate glassworks and handcrafted leather. Now the site of a bustling retail and culinary scene, Peabody retains the charm and sense of community established all those years ago.
A perfect mix of urban sophistication and serene residential neighborhoods, Peabody’s cosmopolitan air is inspired by nearby Boston, which is only a half-hour drive away. Located in the North Shore region of Massachusetts, Peabody’s stunning landscape is known for rocky coastlines, wild beaches, and natural harbors.
