The Peter A. Torigian Senior Center opened its doors as a new state-of-the-art facility in November, 1991. Situated on beautifully landscaped grounds in a quiet setting, the Torigian Senior Center's 37,000 square feet of adaptable space is handicapped accessible.

Managed by the Peabody Council on Aging, a service agency of the City of Peabody, the Center meets the diverse interests of Peabody residents in areas such as entertainment, fitness, education, social services, daycare, and recreation.
