LEATHER CITY
Welcome to Peabody, Massachusetts.
The City of Peabody is situated in the North Shore region of Essex County, and is home to around 51,000 people. Peabody was settled in 1626 and was originally an area in Salem called Northfield, the Farms, or Brooksby. The community was later emancipated to become part of Danvers, before it finally incorporated as its own city in 1916. Peabody was named after the noted philanthropist George Peabody. The town started out as a farming community, but later became centered round its waterpower mills. Peabody was also home to a thriving leather industry well into the later half of the 20th century. The many tanneries caused the city to be nicknamed Leather City or Tanner City, names that still remain today. As the leather industry declined, the town's economy suffered. However, Peabody has grown in other areas such as the automobile industry and several smaller business developments. One of the larger sources of income for the town is the Northshore Shopping center, which is one of the region's largest malls. The mall has been standing since 1958 and houses a plethora of retail stores and restaurants. The center of the city also boasts a large industrial park, the Centennial Park, which has brought in lots of medical and technology companies. One of the most popular attractions in Peabody is the Brooksby Farm, a historic farm and conservation area managed by the city. The city is also home to the prominent Salem Country Club, which is a private club with a vast professional golf course. The state-of-the-art club even hosted the U.S. Senior Open in 2001 and the U.S. Women's Open in 1954 and 1984.
