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


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. 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 in the front and one room on the first floor with a small sitting area and a kitchen/dining area. The windows are all broken and the roof has collapsed, exposing the second floor to the skies. A baseball bat is propped up behind the front door, and two wild razorgrain grow 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 southwest wall. Partially hidden by the dresser low on the northeast wall is an unlocked safe with owned contents. 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.

Notable loot

  • Nuka-Cola Quantum - Inside the fridge in the kitchen. It must be stolen, even if 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 will 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.
