Peachester was named when the town was surveyed in 1888 and it is thought that the name refers to peach trees which were growing at the river crossing. A public hall was built at the town in 1889, and was home to the Peachester school when it started in 1892. Early industries included dairying, timber felling for Grigor's sawmill and a case factory for fruit growers in the 1920s and post World War Two years.
