15 miles northeast of downtown Colorado Springs, Falcon has an approximate population of 10,514. The Denver and New Orleans railroads crossed the area in 1881, and later the Chicago and Rock Island railroad also crossed. By 1888 building lots were being sold, and by 1896 there were two hotels, six saloons, stockyards, two general stores, two train depots, a newspaper, and a school. The passenger rail business decreased with the coming of the automobile, and when a major flood in 1935 took out the Colorado and Southern tracks they were not rebuilt, so the Rock Island Junction closed. By the early 1990s residential development was happening at a quick pace, and by 2000 the population had doubled.
