The Peabody Court Apartments are a historic apartment building at 41-43 Linnaean Street in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The four story Colonial Revival brick building was built in 1922. The H-shaped building has deep courtyards, and is trimmed with limestone elements, including corner quoins, window sills, and keystone lintels. It is a well-preserved example of a courtyard apartment block, a style popularized in 1898 by Ralph Adams Cram.[2]

The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1986.[1]
