Our History

A Legacy of Commitment to Seniors

The origin of Peabody Retirement Community traces back to James B. Peabody and his son, Thomas. After the passing of James’ wife, Estelle, in 1928, he sought to honor her memory while realizing his vision of creating a retirement haven where older individuals could enjoy vibrant living options and compassionate senior care without fear or worry. Collaborating with Presbyterian clergy and laymen from the Synod of Indiana, they established The Estelle Peabody Memorial Home.

Following James’ passing in 1934, Thomas erected The Singing Tower, a prominent monument at the heart of the Peabody campus. This 105-foot carillon chimes quarterly every hour with Westminster melodies, serving as both a testament to the Peabody Family’s generosity and a symbol of Peabody Retirement Community’s unwavering commitment to providing meaningful living and person-centered senior care services to older adults.
