    Erected as a two-story home in 1890, this structure was the original building of Peacock School for boys, founded in 1894 by Wesley Peacock (1865-1941). Military training was initiated in 1900. Chartered in 1904, it became a distinguished school with High Academic standards. Peacock's two sons, Wesley, Jr., and Donald, took charge in 1926 of the Peacock Military Academy. A fire in 1931 on the second floor of the house prompted major remodeling.

After educating 15,000 students, the 20-acre facility was deeded in 1973 to the Salvation Army to be known as Peacock Center.
