Town Profile top of page

The City of Peabody, strategically located 18 miles North of Boston at the intersection of Route 128, Route 1 and I-95, is a city that works, residents state emphatically. They point out that Peabody has evolved into a diverse vibrant community, a wonderful place to live and raise a family, and a tremendous economic success story.

Throughout its history, Peabody has been a regional employment center for the North Shore. From its rise as one of the world's great leather-producers with over 100 tanneries, to today's modern, highly successful Centennial Industrial Park, newly renovated North Shore Mall and rejuvenated downtown, Peabody continues to be a focal point for the North Shore economy.
