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.
Geography and demographics
Peoli lies in a rural area, the surrounding terrain consisting of many hills, ridges and valleys.
They are many farms between Peoli and Newcomerstown to the west and Birmingham to the south. They are two tin shops in the Peoli area, one on State Route 258 and one located on a county road just south of the Tuscarawas/Guernsey county line.
