A real treat to see an actual house preserving some of the history of the area. Good displays. Parking on the street was not an issue.

I lived in this house as a kid and went to first grade right across the street. I am shocked that it is now a museum.

This is a small museum but it was good to find out the founder of the city. Also the city of Peabody was the largest manufacturer of leather in the WORLD!! That's pretty cool. Should check it out if you are here.

Lot of people don't know how important a man George Peabody was as a tremondous philanthropist. He provided a wealth of funding for many causes especially education both in the US and in England. This is a free and quick tour and worth the visit....More

Very nice well-kept historic home. They have their own parking lot. And I think that they also do tours but I wasn't sure. There's also a museum sign but just driving by you can see the beautiful house too.
