The Peabody house is a location in the Commonwealth in 2287 near Quincy ruins.


It is a two-story colonial house in the middle of swampland near the remains of the broken freeway. It is the home of Matt Peabody and Carol Peabody, two ghouls who have lived here ever since the Great War started. They are the parents of Billy Peabody, and this is the destination to which the Sole Survivor escorts Billy during the quest Kid in a Fridge.


The house is dilapidated, consisting of a small covered porch to the front and one room on the ground floor with a small sitting area and kitchen/dining area. A baseball bat is propped up behind the front door with two wild razorgrain growing outside the back door but cannot be harvested.

A set of stairs lead up to another room containing two old iron beds with a first aid box on the west wall. One of the beds is noticeably smaller than normal, being intended for a child, presumably Billy, and has a wooden box containing toys next to it. The other, larger bed is usable by the player character to sleep.

The windows are all broken with the roof collapsed and now open to the skies, which would be of less concern to the ghoul occupants. Partially hidden by the dresser on the east wall is an unlocked safe low on the wall with owned contents.

Notable loot

  • Nuka-Cola Quantum - Inside the fridge located in the living room. It must be stolen even if the related quest Kid in a Fridge is completed.

Related quest


  • When arriving at the house with Billy for the quest, Bullet (met earlier in the quest) will be waiting with a couple of others and demand the sale of the family. Often when visiting at other times, there are several Gunners presumably from nearby Quincy ruins in the house who will immediately attack.
  • Given the close proximity of the house to the ruins, it is possible that Gunners will engage the player character and/or the family. The Peabodys are marked as essential towards the Gunners, meaning they cannot die and will eventually kill the Gunners, even if it takes some time.


The Peabody house appears only in Fallout 4.
