The community of Falcon used to be known as just railroad hub back in the beginning of the 20th century. It was a small ranch community with the population being relatively small, until the boom in the 1990’s. Since this time Falcon has become known as a place to live the country lifestyle, with the convenience of city living being just 15ish minutes away. With the invention of the automobile the railroad excitement died out, and then a flood wiped the tracks out in 1935; they weren’t rebuilt. It wasn’t until way later around 1984 when Falcon gained a business complex with a gas station and convenience store. Once the 1990’s hit, the residential development of Falcon boomed and modern suburban living became a part of this community. Stores such as Safeway, and Walmart have since opened up here and now the community offers the essentials needed for everyday living, without having to drive into Colorado Springs.
