The Robert S.Peabody Museum of Archaeology at Phillips Academy, 175 Main Street, was founded in 1901 through a bequest by Robert Singleton Peabody, an 1857 graduate of Phillips Academy who had a passionate interest in Genenealogy. In 2002 the museum had a particularly fine collection of 500,000 Native American artifacts as well as other materials such as European Paleolithic stone tools. The first meetings of both the Society for American Archeology and the Massaschusetts Archeological Society were held at the Peabody.
