Peabody & Stearns was a premier architectural firm in the Eastern United States in the late 19th century and early 20th century. Based in Boston, Massachusetts, the firm consisted of Robert Swain Peabody (1845-1917) and John Goddard Stearns, Jr. (1843-1917). The firm worked on in a variety of designs but is closely associated with shingle style. [1]

With addition of Pierce P. Furber, presumably as partner, the firm became Peabody, Stearns & Furber.[2][note 1]
