It's important to note that some of the newer suburban developments, especially in the Falcon North area use the Peyton post office, so many of these homes will have a Peyton, CO. address but for the purposes of the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) are not really a part of Peyton.
Some of the first settlers of Peyton were James and Susan McDermott. With the coming of the Rock Island Railroad they settled in Calhan in 1888 and in 1890 moved to Peyton where Mr. McDermott ran a general store for 25 years. The store and their house were for years the only substantial buildings of their kind in the area and served the needs of travelers.
