At the heart of it all
PEABODY WELCOMES YOU!
Come to visit. Come to stay.
We share our beginnings as a farming community followed by our growth as an industrial leader in the New England leather industry.
Nicknamed The Tanner City, Peabody has evolved into a driving force of the region’s economy in the 21st century. Named after George Peabody, a US entrepreneur and philanthropist, Peabody has become a community of 60,000 residents and growing.
Recently named one of America’s top zip codes in 2018; Peabody is a wonderful place to live, work and to prosper amongst top businesses, desirable neighborhoods, excellent schools and beautiful parks.
Our thriving Main Street community is home to small businesses including restaurants, shops and services.
On behalf of our entire city, we invite you to experience Peabody today! We’re located on the North Shore of Massachusetts, only 12 miles north of Boston, neighbor to historic Salem and a short distance to Cape Ann; home to some of the state’s most beautiful beaches, fishing destinations and whale watching excursions.
