Peabody & Stearns designed numerous commercial buildings, many for their home city of Boston.  They designed the Park Square Railroad Station in 1876 (dem.), the R. H. White Warehouse (1883), the curved Boston Exchange Building (1887-1891) and the tower atop the Boston Custom House (1911-1914), among many others.

Many of Peabody’s designs incorporated a tower, which became an early signature element.
