Facts

  • The original hotel was founded in 1869, and its famous guests have included Andrew Johnson, William McKinley, Robert E. Lee, William Faulkner, and Charles Lindbergh.
  • The Peabody is famous for its trained ducks, who live in the Duck Palace on the roof. Every day at 11:00 am they march into the elevator and ride down to the lobby, where a red carpet is rolled out and fanfare is played as they march into the fountain. At 5:00 pm they march back to the elevator and retire.
  • This famous hotel was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1977.
