Peabody–Darst–Webbe is a neighborhood of St. Louis, Missouri. It is also called the Near Southside neighborhood. Peabody–Darst–Webbe is an area bounded by S. Tucker Blvd. on the east, Chouteau Ave. on the north, Dolman Street on the west, and the I-55/I-44 interchange on the south.

Between 1990 and 2000 the neighborhood led the city of St. Louis in population decline, declining 44% over the course of the decade. This was caused largely by the replacement of most of the Public Housing Project highrises with more low rise Townhouse public housing. From 2000 to 2010, however, the area saw a significant rise in population, from 1,460 to 2,378 residents, an increase of 63%, making it one of the fastest growing neighborhoods in St. Louis during that time.[3]
