Peoli is an unincorporated community in Washington Township, Tuscarawas County, Ohio, United States, along State Route 258.


Situated between Newcomerstown and Freeport, it is made up of approximately ten houses and the Peoli Church (1870-c.1991), and the Peoli Cemetery—the final resting place of baseball legend Cy Young. Young's house still stands outside of Peoli, owned by the Amish community and is currently home to their livestock.
