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. The museum was forced to scale cut its staff and to remain open only by appointment in 2001 Phillips had to cut financing to the museum. The Native American Graves and Repatriation Act, passed by Congress in 1990, has also required the repatriation of bones, funerary objects and sacred artifacts. affecting the Peabody's collection.
