Peebles Village

Peebles is a rural village surrounded by some of the most beautiful farmland in the Ohio River Valley. The foothills of the Appalachian Mountains add grace and beauty as travelers are required to slow down and enjoy the scenery when they trek the back roads in this area.

In it’s early years Peebles was a booming place. It was platted in 1881 and named in honor of John G. Peebles, the man who persuaded the Cincinnati and Eastern Railway to cross Zane’s Trace (State Route 41) here.  Local citizens saw opportunities to create businesses and Peebles came into it’s own. By 1906 the village was so progressive that Chautauqua Days were held and drew many visitors for public lectures, concerts and other cultural events.

In 1957, the fifth annual World’s Plowing Match and Conservation Exposition was held on 2,500 acres north of the village. Fourteen nations participated. A monument commemorating this great event stands in the center of the village.

The 1970’s brought more exciting changes. With the completion of the four lane Appalachian Highway that crosses Zane’s Trace on the south end of town, Cincinnati and its amenities are only an hour away. Another great change was the purchase of farmland by Amish families. These fine folks appreciate the local rural heritage. Their farms, businesses, and families remind us to enjoy the slower pace, much like our ancestors enjoyed in this area.
