Just south of the Crane River inlet, Peabody, MA offers big city convenience with a small, countryside city feel. At just over 50,000 citizens[*], Peabody maintains a peaceful, quiet environment with everything a family might want. If you are looking to work or spend significant time in Boston, Peabody will shave six figures[*] off the price of your home while still being only a half-hour drive away from downtown. Public transportation to Boston is readily available.
One of the first established communities in North America, Peabody started as farming land that used its wealth of stream and creek systems to develop a number of mills. Around the beginning of the 20th century, Peabody became a hub for New England’s leather industry, resulting in a wave of immigration to the city that has come to define its openness and diversity. With nearly 400 years of history, there’s plenty more to learn at the Peabody Historical Society and Museum.
Having been recently ranked by Forbes Magazine as a Top 15 livable city in the U.S., Peabody hasn’t stopped being a desirable place to settle down. Surrounded by numerous parks, a pair of golf courses, the Northshore Mall and Historic Salem, Peabody offers something for everyone. And don’t overlook a local source of great pride, The Brooksby Farm, an interactive farm for all seasons.
