The City of Peabody is in the “North Shore” area of Massachusetts, with 16.9 square miles conveniently located 18 miles north of Boston, in Essex County. 

The area of Peabody, MA was first settled in 1626 and was often referred to as “Northfields”, “the Farms”, and “Brooksby.” Peabody was originally incorporated as part of Danvers, but later broke off in 1855 to be known as South Danvers. Finally in 1868 the name was changed to Peabody, named after the philanthropist George Peabody, and became incorporated as a city in 1916.
