History

The city of Peyton was founded in 1888 by George Peyton. The city was originally named “Mayfield” but the post office wouldn’t allow this name because there was already a city named this in California, so Peyton it became. The Rock Island Railroad ran through Peyton at around this time and was the reason for settlers coming to the area. The McDermott family was first to really settle in Peyton and they ran a small general store for those passing and traveling through Peyton, on the railroad. In the early 1900’s the city started to establish itself and even had quite a few businesses at one point, however a fire erupted and took out most of them. Once the community rebuilt it was vibrant but then there was a flood in 1965 that left the railroad tracks severely damaged. The community was able to pull together to repair the damaged tracks, and get it back to working order again. As of today the community has the general store and the Post Office as its two notable businesses. 


Public Works

Peyton is served by Mountain View Electric, Atmos Energy, Intermountain Rural Electric, AmeriGas, Aquila, C and L Water and Park Forest Water District,

Schools

The small community of Peyton has its own school district, District 23-JT. The schools in this district consists of, Peyton Elementary School, Peyton Middle School, and Peyton High School. The elementary school is Pre-K to 6th grade, slightly different from most districts, however the education at Peyton schools is outstanding. 

Weather 

The weather in Peyton tends to be slightly different from the weather in nearby Colorado Springs, due to the landscape consisting of high plains rather than a mountainous region. Peyton tends to be a few degrees warmer than Colorado Springs on average. This community also tends to receive more snowfall than Colorado Springs, and therefore may result in more snow days at school. Peyton offers about 300 days of sunshine a year, giving the residents plenty of days to spend outside in the beautiful Colorado warmth, ranching and farming their days away. Another positive to the weather in Peyton is the little to no humidity. Without the humidity making the outside all muggy, everyday can be spent outside, either working or relaxing in the Colorado sun. 

Restaurants & Geography

The only dining option located in Peyton is Pop A Top Saloon. This saloon has a great old school bar environment and has some great pizza to go along with it. Outside of Peyton there is a plethora of dining options located in nearby Falcon, or Colorado Springs. In Falcon some of the restaurants include: Frankie’s Too, Culver’s, Sonic, Subway, A&W, Domino’s Pizza, and El Burrito Grande. Then just a short drive from Falcon is the Powers Corridor. Powers features every chain restaurant you could imagine, and plenty of fast food places as well. Venturing further into Colorado Springs there are plenty of local mom and pop restaurants like: King Chef Diner, Rasta Pasta, Shuga’s, Bristol Brewing Company, Garden of the Gods Gourmet, and many more. If you’re looking for a nice night out to dinner, here are some upscale options: Pepper Tree Restaurant, Famous Steak House, Melting Pot, and the various restaurants located in and around The Broadmoor Hotel. 

The geography of Peyton is slightly different from its close neighbor, Colorado Springs. Peyton is a high plains area and therefore isn’t mountainous and as heavily weather dependent upon the mountains, as Colorado Springs is. In Peyton the locals farm and spend time outside working more than the average resident in Colorado Springs. The high plains landscape can make for a high fire danger, so residents must keep this in mind during the hot summer months.

Attractions

The Peyton community has some great trails and fields to explore, however it’s more of a working community, and so close to the city that it doesn’t need to offer much recreational activities for residents to engage in.  In Falcon there are many places to shop for home and essential goods. For the residents of Peyton, Falcon is a great place to go and stock up on groceries and gas. But in order to really experience Colorado attractions, the best idea is to head west into Colorado Springs and spend a day exploring the mountains. One of the best attractions in Colorado Springs is Garden of the Gods. The gorgeous red sandstone makes for breathtaking views, and plenty of great hiking trails and giant rocks to climb all over. Heading further west there is the Cog Railway, a train that takes guests to the top of Pike’s Peak. If being on the top of a mountain isn’t enough excitement, there are plenty other trails and mountains to explore, in and around the Colorado Springs area. Colorado Springs also offers tons of shopping. The Powers Corridor is the closest shopping to Peyton, and it has every shoe, clothing, and home improvement store you would ever need. Peyton is the perfect little town to establish a new home for you and your family because it has beautiful seclusion from the city, however it’s still close enough to the city to enjoy life.
